Well, I went on the computer and it was already logged in, and a message was displayed on the screen from Windows saying "other people are logged on to this computer" and giving me an option to log off or something like that. I found 2 bank related windows open, but later found this was my dad attempting to do banking stuff. But when I told him about the second user, he was confused. Here is what it looks like, but on a different user. (The message was on the Administrator account.)
Anyone know what this might be?

P.S. It would be nice if you could remove your loud signature? Thanks TH
Typical sequence of events that could trigger this: You boot up the computer, sign in, and eventually click Switch User when you get up to go do something else. Dad comes along and signs in as Owner. Now you're actually still logged in when this happens because you switched users instead of logging out. So when Dad is done with the computer, maybe he tries to shut it down or restart it. At that point, the message comes up because it doesn't want him closing any work you might still have open in your session. Make sense? It's basically a courtesy message from Windows designed to help you not lose open work.
