    Hi Guys,

    I have a workstation level computer (2Gig celeron, 256PC2700, everything intergrated, WinXPPro SP1) that I am having a difficult time figuring out a problem on it.

    This computer pretty much stays on 24/7, and a very, very low amount of work goes through it. Only when do I actually work on it, it will log off by itself unexpectly. I will press a Cntl+Alt+Del and the login user screen comes up. When it is not being used, it never logs itself off. I am baffled by this problem. I have run hijack this, spybot to see if it is a trojan, but nothing comes up. I do expect it to be a Windows problem, not a trojan anyways.

    BTW, if it is worth noting, I do have a Linksys KVM switch on it. I am controlling a second tower with this switch.

    Thanks in advance.

    weird - sorry, can't help now but am about to get another desktop very similar spec. and almost identical anticipated usage - so if I hit the same problem I will investigate too, and anyway I want to stay subscribed to the thread. Hope someone else has some ideas.

    I long time ago in a Galaxy far… far away, I remember something about “User Profiles” causing problems when you use the same login name/password mapped across domains causing unexpected problems. I will do some quick research about this as I encountered similar problems when XP fist appeared but strangley not since.

    I did want to add that the "Fast User Switching" service has been disabled on this machine. I am starting to think that maybe that it might actually be the KVM switch. I will test later by removing. I am still pretty sure that it might be a Windows problem. This computer is hooked up to a workgroup.
