    I have the same problem as this user:

    http://forums.techguy.org/windows-vista/799943-computer-keeps-saying-one-other.html

    I transferred an account from one user to another. I had them both logged in when I deleted the old user. Now I get an error stating that another user is logged in even though there is only one user on the system.

    I have tried rebooting. The Guest account is off.

    There must be a setting (Registry Entry?) that is listing the other user as still being logged in. Any ideas about where to find it?

    Thank you.

    How did you "delete" the other user? Did you choose the option to delete his personal files, too?

    Yes, the first user was an exact copy of the second user with a different name.

    After restoring the files to the new user I went to the User Control Panel and deleted the old user. It asked me If I wanted to delete the files and I agreed. It thought for about 5 minutes then warned me that the other user was still logged in and if I continued I might lose data. Since the other user had no programs open I agreed to continue.
