Anyone logging onto this system has to have a user ID and password assigned by someone else with administrative rights. If you click, Start, Programs, Administrative Tools, and choose Computer Managment. You get a window with several options, chooseLocal Users and Groups and click the "+" sign. Then choose Users, open guests and disable the account. Create an account for yourself and anyone else you want to have acces to the machine.

answer 1 takes care of local users, but since your on a network you may have domain users with access to your computer as well. Expand groups under computer management\local users and groups and check what accounts are in the administrators, backup operators, guests, power users, replicator, and user groups. Any accounts listed in the above mentioned groups will be able to logon to your machine. remove the accounts you don't want and add or leave the one's you do want to allow.
