    Thing is even when I started up the computer this morning, first thing I did was check the uptime command again and bingo 3 users was there again. Is there any command or way to see the users logged into the machine?

    I got this reply from another forum


    "when applications run, you log into X etc... you will become another user. nothing to worry about. they're probably all you. or one is root and the rest are you."
