    Is there a freely downloadable program that will list all users and what
    they're doing on my Windows computer?

    Sometimes, when I try to shut dow or disable my wireless connection, I get
    a message telling me someone else is using my Windows XP Home computer. But
    there's nobody else. There's no other user. I don't share resources (not
    knowingly anyway). I have WEP encryption.

    How can I tell who or what is causing this wireless network connection
    error?

    Is there a freely downloadable program that will list all users and what
    they're doing on my Windows computer?

    When I try to disable the wireless connection, I get

    Error Disabling Connection
    It is not possible to disable the connection at this time.
    This connection may be using one or more protocols that do not support
    Plug-and-Play, or it may have been initiated by another user or the system
    account.

    When I try to shutdown the Windows PC, I get

    Windows
    Other people are logged on to this computer.
    Shutting down Windows might cause them to lose data.
    Do you want to continue shutting down?

    I think I found out how to find other users from the Microsoft KB article
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/279765

    The Sysinternals free process explorer has a "users" menu which should tell
    me who is logged in. I just was able to shutdown (so the user must have
    logged off in the interim) so I don't see any users but now I know what to
    look for.

    OK. I'll look up Windows fast user switching and disable it.
    I see myself, and only myself, so, I guess, I'm ok.

    Thank you!
