Windows games hang if more as 1 user logged in

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Games' started by Deborggraeve Randy, Mar 11, 2006.

  1. Hi,

    my kid loves the games in vista. he has his own account using parental
    controls (these are very usefull with little kids ;)) Only when i take a
    break and he go into his profile while i'm still logged in (switch user
    instead of logoff) he can't play the games, they allways hang. Once i logoff
    my account they work again.

    Did some testing with multiple accounts cause i tought it had something to
    do with the parental controls.
    as soon as more as 1 user is logged in the games hang on all accounts.

  2. It sounds like a Parental Controls bug, or maybe not set up properly to
    allow the games he wishes to play...

  3. Don;t think its related to the parental controls.

    When i log in using 2 account not having parental control, i have the same
    problem, no mather what kind of account i use, as soon more as 1 user is
    logged in, the games hang.

  4. Ahh... might be worth a try, go to Run, type in MSCONFIG, and select the
    Tools tab. Highlight "Disable UAP" and select Launch. Restart the machine
    and try again.
