I am using windows xp pro and for some reason I can no longer switch users without logging off. I have tried to enable this feature in control panel\user accounts, but any time I check the box when I go back in it is unchecked again. How can I fix this, as there are five people in the house using this PC?

celticbhoy0, are all the services that are required for Fast User Switching set to automatic?

Navigate to Control Panel > Performance and Maintenance > Administrative Tools > Services.

The Fast User Switching service should be running and Terminal Services and Remote Procedure Call should also be running, as the Fast User Switching service is dependant on them.

HTH, dagwoood.
