    Not presently but in the past I used it with XP. To be honest, I really liked it alot. The only drawback was the switching states was time consuming but personally it didn't bother me because it worked well. I really liked the option that popped up at shutdown to save files. As of now, I've been using Eaz-Fix which has worked well also but it's much quicker.

    Not here but I've looked at it over the years when it was called the Shared Computer Toolkit and now SteadyState. If it was just a bit faster is mostly the criticism but system configuration, free and you can image are some of the pluses. Its actually grown and matured into a nice tool under 'shared access.'

    edit: spelling

    If you're referring to the classic logon/logoff dialog, that can be changed back in User Accounts, I think. It's been awhile since I used it but I did change mine back somehow.

    Exactly my feelings about it, I've always wondered why MS doesn't offer it with the basic tools with every Windows CD. If the switching states were faster it would be a terrific program. Obviously its low popularity didn't help in developing it further.
