Unable to switch user

I have been unable to switch user for some time now.
Using Win XP Professional and am having to Log Off before then logging on as the other user.

Any fixes out there ?

For some reason, I can tick the 'Enable fast user switching' box, and when I check to see it is still ticked it has reverted to being unticked.
Can't for the life of me know what caused this to happen originally.

Click on start - run - type in


which opens up services, make sure terminal services is started, and set to Automatic'

Fast user switching depends on this service.

It does NOT work.
It shows the window 'switch user or log off' when you go to 'log off', the following window shows the two users, but when clicking to change user, it simple resets the window, meaning the screen flickers but doesn't do anything.So you still have go to log off, then log on as the other user.
