switch user not displayed

The switch user button is not displayed in windows 7 starter on my netbook. I just bought it last week and it worked for 3-4 days and now it is gone. I have 2 admin accounts on it and one guest account. Any help would be appreciated.
thanks,
Pankaj

If Walker's link doesn't work, try a system restore to get to a point before the troubles began.

Hello Pankaj, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Sorry, but Switch User is not available in the Windows 7 Starter edition.

Thank you all for your replies. I tried executing the registry script but it did not work. I am surprised that it is not available in Windows 7 starter, because I could see it in the first 3-4 days.
Thanks again for your time.
