Default Different Display Settings for each User in XP

Windows XP has the annoying habit of assuming that every user wants to run his operating system with the same screen resolution, color depth and refresh rate. If you ever had to share a computer running windows xp with older folks you know what I mean - they tend to love low resolutions because everything on the screen appears to be bigger that way.

The tool xp user display settings stores the following information for every user on a single machine separately and loads those settings once the user logs into his account. Every user may choose the resolution, refresh rate and color depth that he likes to work with ignoring the settings of other users who have a account on that machine as well.

Xp user display settings does not seem to support fast user switching, that is at least what the author is stating at the products homepage. He suggest that you user XP Keep per user display settings instead which seems to support fast user switching. It would be best if you would take a look at the read me file which comes included with both programs to know what they do and how to remove them completely if something goes wrong.
