    Hi,
    Can you figure this out? Often when I go to shut my computer down the following message comes on my desktop:
    Other people are logged on to this computer. If you shut down now they will lose their data !!!
    Cheers, sylvie

    If there is more than one user account on the machine and someone "logs off" switches user accounts and then you go to shut down the machine you will get this message. It causes no problems unless the "other user" has open files they have changed and has not saved their work.

    You will also get this if your on a Corporate Network and someone is connected to your PC as in an Administrator viewing your C: Drive.
