Yes. Those links tell what you that Fast User Switching is. TGhat is
the complete content of Help and Support regarding FAS: its definition.
It also states that Vista's Welcome Screen, from which Fast User
Switching is accessed, is on by default and, unlike WinXP's, *cannot* be
turned off. Hence FAS cannot be turned off. I think the OP may well
have already tried that route.
There's also no longer the option of "Changing the way Users log On and
Off" in the Control Panel.
In this respect, Vista is less secure than WinNT, Win2K, or WinXP.
Hiding user account names from unauthorized eyes is a fundamental
principle of computer security.
