  1. I have Fast User Switching enabled, yet every time I use the "Winkey+L" function, it goes to the classic screen with the "This computer is in use and has been locked" message.
    im not in any network, i have two accounts, plus the admin account, and the guest account is disabled. any help?

    Fast user switching can block a number of items although I have never heard of your problem.Does this key combination work with FUS turned off. If so turn it off ,then check Microsoft to see if there is a work around .You may not need it anyway,I have found it isn't worth it.

    Did you try making this change as administrator or as a limited user?
    Is windows up to date ?
