Default Windows Accounts going crazy

I posted this on the Security/Hacking Thread because I think it might have to do with some spyware I got some days ago. But here it goes:

Suddenly my Windows XP is unable to open 2 user accounts at the same time, before I could switch between two or more accounts, now I have to log off the one I am in to be able to log on to the other one. I really need to solve this problem, thanks in advance for your help

Sounds like Fast User Switching magically disabled itself. If you press Ctrl-Alt-Del, you'll probably see something like this: (not my screenshot, Windows won't let me do that)



You need to go to Control Panel -> User Accounts -> Change the way users log on or off

Then check the box marked "Use Fast User Switching" - make sure the Welcome Screen is enabled, otherwise you can't do it. Hit Apply Options, and you should be all set.
