    Is "user" an administrator of the computer?

    Does the logon screen have a place to type in the username and password, or does it only show an icon with the "user" account, and you click on "user" and then the password area appears?

      It sounds like you are not in an Active Directory environment. What version of XP are you using?
      The things you describe occur when one alters the settings (or "behavior") of the computer accounts on the computer, through Start -> Settings -> Control Panel -> User Accounts.
      To enable the Fast User Switching option, go to Change the way users log on or off and see that the two checkboxes are checked (see the logon screenshot).
      The reason you get Access Denied is that when one defined the share on the specific folder, the Make this folder private was checked (see the private screenshot). If you need this changed, uncheck the checkbox.
      Good luck.
