Windows 7: iTunes & sounds keep playing even when user logs off using Switch user

iTunes & sounds keep playing even when user logs off using Switch user

Running Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit.

Why does iTunes and other sounds keep playing even when that user who initiated it logs off using "Switch user?" The sounds and iTunes keep playing even when another user logs in.

Could be because of Fast User Switching. That really doesn't Log Out the other user. It just Switches users, as in both are still logged in.

Try Logging out the other user.

Oh, got it! So there is no way to "fix" this problem as long as FUS is enabled?

Sure Log the other User Out instead of just Switching Users. When they Log Out all there programs will be shut down which will stop all those sounds.

So I guess that's a "no," then. Thanks!
