Windows XP sp2: Turning on/off user account?

  Stressed Mum 12:04 19 Jan 08

Is there any way that you can switch a user account on and off the same as you can a guest account? If not - is there anyway that you can copy the settings and desk top short cutsto the guest account? thanks. SM

Use TweakUI, under the Logon heading you can disable accounts (or at least hide them from the Welcome page). You can also transfer settings (Logon/Settings). click here
