Smacks of unauthorised access and user priveledges / restrictions being applied.

You can try to activate the hidden administrator account in Vista. Hopefully you are able to successfully log into it so you can take care of "other user" and troubleshoot.

Have a look at the linked page below, it outlines a few methods to activate or enable the hidden administrator account. Hopefully one of them works for you.
