Fast Switching with XP Pro problem

  roger 17:13 11 Feb 2006

The back ground is that I have just bought a new laptop with XP home and loaded up XP Pro and all my programmes and set it for two users.

Both users are shown in the log in page and are both accessable when booting up. However, when I try to switch users the computer hangs.

Does anyone have any ideas?

"just bought a new laptop with XP home and loaded up XP Pro"

So exactly which OS do you have on this laptop? XP Home, XP Pro or both?

Hi Jackcoms

Both. I thought I had deleted Home but when I boot up I get the choice of programmes so I assume Home is still there.

However, I am using Pro.

Suggest you choose one or the other.

Can't see the point of having 2 OS on one PC - and it may be the cause of your problem

Thanks Jackcoms. I had a feeling that might possibly be the case. I will now uninstall Home and will let you know if it succeeds in solving the issue.
