I recently reinstalled XP on my home computer and have had not problems with it except the following.

Sometimes I will randomly get a shut down screen with a message that says...

"There is another user logged onto your computer if you terminate now they may lose there work"

I have run malwarebytes, AVG, Windows defender and have not found any viruses or malware.

What on earth is causing this issue?

Yeah, I read that prior to posting here and it still isn't really an answer to my question.

I was hoping to get something more difinitive.

As I've said, there aren't any other issues with my machine. It isn't locking up, it's almost as if it's doing a restart, could be from auto updates but when it does I get this message.

Most of the time it's hard for me to check the connected users because I'm away from the computer when this happens.
