    I cant switch users

    I cant log on to any users but the local administrator. I cant even go under and make changes to the other accts.
    Any ideas ? I am not very computer savvy.

    Hello Sarah, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    What happens when you try? Do you get any error messages?

    For now, you might see if doing a system restore using a restore point (if available) dated before this started may be able to fix this.

    Hope this helps for now,

Switch from Mac OS X
I used to hate Windows for many years, because it was ugly, slow and unstable. However I liked the look of Windows 8 and it is faster than Mac OS X.
