I have problems logging out a second user..... If user A is logged in then switches users, user B logs in surfs the web checks email etc, then logouts my system likes to hang usually leaving the screen black and not returning to the login screen. Once in a while it will freeze on the screen that says "Logging out" but usually its just the black screen. I've checked the event viewer and there is nothing relevant in the security or system tabs, but everytime this happens I see a warning in the application section saying:

Windows cannot unload your classes registry file - it is still in use by other applications or services. The file will be unloaded when it is no longer in use.

For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

Unfortunately it doesnt say what program it is and following the link does not actually provide any more help. Any ideas??

Oh and I do have a 'User C' also who occasionally has the same problem....This problem happened to me prior to formatting C: and reinstalling WinXP...so I would guess it's a software problem...I (user A) use lots of different programs, but the other two users basically only use IE, Outlook, and MediaPlayer. Opening Outlook with 2 different users seemed to be a good way to recreate it but it doesn't always do it, and Outlook isn't required to cause it...so I really have no clue

Thanks
Tom

Im pretty sure :

What that error is telling you is - a program you have running in the background is poorly designed and doesnt support Fast Switching users

Find out what programs are running in the background, kill one by one and see what one is causing the problem
