Have you ever deleted a user in the start button
-->control panel-->user groups?
Sometimes it helps to show hidden files
. Check show hidden files & uncheck hide system files. Then navigate to My Computer C:\ (making sure to show the contents of this drive on the left) to the documents & settings and see which users have folders there and whats in 'em. Be slow to delete, but you can copy files if you want. See if Dad has a folder.
Also, does it do it when you start inSafe Mode
by tapping F8 repeatedly at a reboot. Start when the screen goes black and keep it up until the screen appears where you can use the up arrow to choose safe mode. Hit enter. Hit enter. Do more than one user name appear at the slightly modified welcome screen?
In fact what do you see at a normal boot, the welcome screen with a user name?
There is a way to see that screen without any user name & windows simply continues to the desktop after a couple seconds of showing it.
