Hi!
I am using windows xp pro SP2, with all windows updates made.
I also use Kaspersky as antivirus and sygate as firewall.
Everything was working fine until i decided to apply Safexp
(http://www.theorica.net/safexp.htm) on my computer. I selected a lot of
options to increase my computer security and privacy. A lot of options
worked fine and i also noticed a lot of speed improvements.

But..
I am a massive user of fast user switching utility of windows XP. It stoped
working.

1)I lost windows key+L function(it started to block my computer insted going
to welcome screen)

2)On Task manager(control+alt+delete) on tab "process" there is no
respective user to process, it is blank (only inactive process have
"system"), on tab "users" no user is logged in.

So, i decided to look arround and i checked that "use fast user switching"
was disabled on Control panel. I try to enable it but it doesn't worked.

I applyed "Secure Desktop undo" and "Restore Fast User Switching" of
http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htm i a got back my windows key+L
function, welcome screen back and teh option of control painel checked.

I was happy until that when i try to have 2 (or more) users logged on at
same time Welcome Screen loops when trying to log on. I can only have a user
at once.

I already contacted Safexp forum and technical support, but no answers.

Please, i really need help and (re)format is out of question.
Any help is welcome.
Thanks for all and sorry bad english.

Guilherme

Making vast automated changes to the OS is, as you seem to now be aware, not
always the best choice. I'd try a repair installation:

You should not, just make sure you use a different profile name to be sure.
If you want you can then copy your old profile into your new one.

Corrupted Profile: Windows XP :
http://kgiii.info/windows/XP/general/corruptprofile.htm...

Those are the directions but usually for a different reason.
