Windows 7: user logon/off problem

24 Aug 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
user logon/off problem

We currently have three user profiles, each with its own log on/off. When I use an application and then close it, I log off the profile and will see three icons, one for each of the profiles.

Sometimes, tho', a shift occurs for no apparent reason. Having loggd off and left the computer on for awhile, another user or I might again look at the screen and see only one icon. Not only is there only my icon available, the screen message is that the only choice is for me (whoever the next of the three users is to access the system) to switch users. Unless the next user knows my password, s/he cannot directly log off from my identity. [very frustrating for the next user!] How/why is this happening? NOTE: this only seems to happen in relation to my log on/off. When the other users log off after their use, the computer consistently shows the three user icons. Any subsequent users can log on to their identity from that screen, instead of being forced to switch from one user to theirs in order to use that pc.
