When I try to log in, I now receive the message ' this action can't be completed because the other program is busy, click 'switch to' to activate''. When I click on 'switch to' nothing happens and I am unable to open program. How can I stop this message from occurring?

Ugh, I have this happen from time to time, no clue why or what triggers it.
When I hit Switch To, the Windows Start button menu opens and then I close it, then I have to hit Switch to again and the same thing happens...usually does it 4-6 times in a row then everything opens normally.
The only thing I can think of is maybe my anti virus or my cloud back-up is doing something with the PS files at the same time as Im trying to log in and its creating a conflict? I honestly dont know what to tell you, except youre not alone!
Hmm. A lot is going on during sign in. As a guess, a file is getting locked somehow.
Some clarifying questions.
- Does this go away for awhile if you restart your machine?
- Do you get the message after entering your user name/password and hitting "Sign In"?
- Are you using Professional Network, Professional or Basic?
Also, can you take a screenshot of the issue, and email that and C:\ProWin20\32bit\logs\proseries.txt to email@example.com?
I may be logging in too quickly after the login screen appears and it hasnt fully loaded yet maybe?
Maybe I'll grab my phone and video it one of these days!
