CANT SWITCH USER ACCOUNTS!


G

Guest

I've been unable to switch user accounts for some time without using task
manager. Have used fast user switching as an alternative for a couple of
weeks I turned off my pc by mistake without logging off my daughters account.
Since then Iv'e been unable to access either account without completely
turning pc off and then back on to log on to one account. When using 'task
manager' it shows theres no users there at all!.
Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi Alison,

Ensure that Terminal Services is started....

Go to Start>Run and key in:
services.msc
Click on OK or hit ENTER
Scroll to locate Terminal Services and double-click on it
In the "Startup type" field, ensure that Automatic is selected and click on
Apply
Click on the Start button under "Service status" then click on Apply then OK
Close the Services window



Regards,

Atomatic is selected but when I click on the start button under 'service
status' I get this msg - 'Could not start the Terminal Services on Local
Computer. Error 1083: The executable program that this service is configured
to run in does not implement the service.

Thanks to all who have helped me. Someone told me download and run this
utility-
termsvcfix.zip , It worked a treat and Terminal Services are now started,
and fast user switching is working.

You're welcome, Alison, and I am glad that you found a fix for your problem.

Sorry I was unable to return to your thread to check for progress updates
after having posted a response, but I found myself swamped with activity
both at work and at home.

I've got the same problem, (terminal service won't start, so fast switching
and welcome screen don't work) but can't run the utility referenced because
it is only for SP2. I have already loaded SP3. Do you know what the utility
does, Is there a manual way to do it?
