Go to user accounts in the control panel depending on the view you use you may have to select user account again. Seect change the way users login and uncheck both. If you don't have a user create one that way you get the option to pick which one you want.

I have tried this method before and never worked. I would like to know if my windows is corrupt or not.

Go to Start, Run and type 'control userpasswords2' (without the quotes). In the users tab, check the box next to 'Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer'

Can you disable fast switching?

If this is the "XP Home" version, there isn't much hope short of formatting and re-installing.
what happened was a virus destroyed your security settings. You may have removed the virus, but the damage was done. I wasted two weeks on a friends "XPHome" computer. He didn't even have access to some directories and files even though he was logged in as Administrator.

Save your data to a USB flash card or a CDR if you have either, put in the XP cd and start over.
Don't forget to export e-mails and favorites

Just as I feared, it's Home Version but I think could have been hit by virus.
