Local user can log into RDP account...

Specs: Windows 7 32 bit
My laptop is running Windows 7 32 bit, and I RDP to my desktop Windows XP SP3 machine. Problem is, if I RDP to the XP machine and someone comes along and clicks on a DIFFERENT user account ie (any account other than the one I''ve RDPed into) it automatically loads MY account that they shouldn't be able to get into (the one I've been using RDP on). Is this just a general bug in windows or is there something I can do so that when a local user wants to use account "B" it doesn't log them onto my account "A"?

Some considerations: If I turn on the computer locally and the first thing I do is log into account "A" remotely, this flaw does not happen. However, if I turn on the computer locally and log into account "A" locally, and later remotely then this problem occurs. It's weird, hope someone can help :)

Guess I can solve my own problem... It seems that Teamviewer is the conflict, if I ctrl-alt-delete Teamviewer then rdp works fine like it should.

Permissions where... in Teamviewer? I don't see anything that says "permissions" in it's options.

I also have an unrelated problem of Windows asking the RDP user constantly for a password when the screensaver appears and I have "show welcome screen" selected Whereas it used to just show a black screen on my RDP session and if I move the mouse it would come back up without the pop up box. Though I may just need to make a new topic for that one ;) I believe this problem happened after I installed XP powertoys, but uninstalling did nothing.
