    Cannot switch between Users thru Windows Vista Task Manager

    Hey guys, I recently discovered that I get an access denied error when I
    attempt to switch between different admin users under Vista SP2. How do I
    solve this issue?

    Thanks in advance . . . Tom J.

    Sounds like a service that isn't running. I'm not sure which one but just look through them and see whats not running and if it deals with users or logon then start it and see if it fixes your problem.

    Elevate Task Manager by clicking the Show processes from all users button in
    the Processes tab. Then see if you can switch users.

    Thanks everyone who contributed to this msg. I finally realized that only
    admin users are allowed to switch between other users just like you are with
    XP. Problem solved. . .

    Thanks again . . . .Tom J.

    Thanks again Ramesh, I found out that my problem had to do with the fact
    that only admin users are allowed to switch back and forth just like in XP.

    Thanks again TomJ.
