    Hello Gabriel,

    It looks like "Switch User" was disabled. See if using step 3 in METHOD TWO of the tutorial below may be able to enable it again for you. It's the same in Windows 8.

    Hope this helps,

    Nothing . Can I help you with something? Like sending an archive to facilitate the solution or something like that.

    If you have a restore point dated before this started available, then you could do a system restore using that restore point to hopefuly fix it.

    I find that programs like these tend to cause more issues than they are worth, but to each their own.
