Changing Log on Method in XP - ERROR - HELP PLZE

    I have been trying to use the feature of enabling the way a user logs on to XP. I keep getting an error.

    The error is: "Automation server can't create object"

    As soon as I click on 'change the way users log on or off' this error comes up. When I try to click 'Use the Welcome screen, the error comes up again. XP will not allow me to change back to the welcome screen logon, so I am forced to use the standard NT classic type logon. I have scoured the net for answers and MS knowledge base has nothing on this error. Has anyone got any ideas or help?

    Thanks

    It'll be a Service you've switched off, maybe "Fast user switching" or "Secondary logon" or some such. Run Services.msc and have a look around.

    Thanks Dirk,

    I had a look. Fast user switching is turned on and enabled. Secondary Logon cannot be enabled, it says the service is not installed?!?! Weird.

    How do I re-install just the secondary logon service from the XP install cd?

    Thanks again
