    No Switch user option


    I work in a large organisation where we have many domain user accounts... (duh)

    I was in the process of setting up a PC using the local admin account, when I logged out and tried to log into the new users account.

    Instead of 'Switch user' being underneath the account name I had 'Cancel'

    I've done numerous Google searches and I have come across nothing like this.

    I'm not currently situated at the machine so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
    It is a vista enterprise SP1 machine

    Hello. sounds as if it is corrupted, Try setting up another one. If that fails . try the Hidden Admin account : Administrator Account Also, something to keep in mind. Vista OS's are using SP2 , that computer needs updating .
