Switch User Settings XP

I am trying to enable switch user settings.I tick the box on "use fast user switching" on my user account but on exiting the tick is automatically removed.
Is there something else I need to set up?

Log on as the Administrator to enable this option.

Start menu/run, type


Make sure Fast User Switching and Terminal Services are set to Automatic and click Start to get them going immediately.

Thanks that has enabled it but when I go the user name screen it will not let me switch across to another user only myself?

Does the other account work if you actually log-out of the first account, or if you select it first when you start the machine?

Just rebooted and all seems ok now.
Thanks for your help
