Question XP Screen Resoloution w/ 2 User Accounts

Howdy All.

I'm looking for (hopefully) someone to find this an easy question.

The Situation: I've created a user account for myself on my girlfriend's computer,divided the start menu's and got all programs running pretty much as i want them. However I prefer 1024x768 screen rez whereas she is much happier with the 800x600 rez.

The Problem: Whenever we switch from one user to the other. The screen resoloution doesn't change properly. We both have our desktops laid out differently and this is becoming somewhat of a hassle having to change the resoloution back 2 or even 3 times just to get it back as the user left it.

The Bit i Got Stuck On: I've pretty much exhausted what i know trying to rectify this and i've got a sinking feeling that its just something that winXP can't do. A google search yielded nothing promising and I'm hoping maybe that its just something i don't know or that there's a 3rd party prog somewhere that can rectify this specific issue etc.

Anyone who's tried to run a multiple user system with different screen resoloutions will prolly know what i'm talking about.
Workarounds or suggestions from all quarters are welcome and very much appreciated

Thank you for taking the time to read me.
