My windows XP cannot switch between users. The only way it can do is log
off. Do you have any idea to solve it?

    That's how it works.. log off one user and log onto another user..

    That's two concepts:

    switch user: two account can be active at same time.
    log off: only one account is active at a time.

    Fast user switching has to be turned on. I'm not at my XP machine
    right now but so I can't tell you the exact keystrokes
    if you search on fast user switching in Help and
    support it should tell you what you want to know.

  4. I know how to,
    You go to Control panel
    then to user accounts
    change the way user log on and off
    A. use fast switching
    B. If you get a message about offline files, click okay. from there you'll be able to put them off. after that go back to the change the way user log on and off tab and click on fast logon
