Windows 7: Switch User does not permit additional user to be logged in

Switch User does not permit additional user to be logged in

Hi everybody
My computer has just started this one in the last week or so. Not sure of the exact trigger or exactly when.

I can be logged on as any valid user on the system. When I try to switch user using the standard methods, after selecting a user account it says that there is already a user logged in and that I can only have one user logged in.

I have Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit and have been running it successfully (and being able to switch users) for several years now.

Is there anybody that can point me in the right direction as to where to look for this one?
Many Thanks
LP

Hi,

Take a look at this guide and see if Fast User Switching is enabled?
How To Enable/Disable Fast User Switching In Windows 7, Vista, XP

Thanks for responding Jamie.
I found the solution last night and it was actually the Cisco AnyConnect SSL VPN client that I had installed last week for testing. And, of course, after I worked out what it was I also found a microsoft document explaining the problem. This document refers: support.microsoft.com/kb/829715
