Several members of the family use the PC, and up until recently we could leave one user's 'site' running and click the 'Switch User' button on XP start screen rather than logging off and losing everything. Rather annoyingly if we try to 'Switch User' now it doesn't work so you have to log off and start your own User name 'site' which is a pain & all rather long-winded. It seems that this facility has dropped off our machine. Any ideas how we can get it back. We don't have the XP O.S. discs because we bought the PC about 5 - 6 years ago from MESH and they pre-install the O.S and you only have a 'Recovery Disc' for use if it crashes
