Assuming this is YOUR computer, boot from an install CD, open the System folder on the hard drive, open the Preferences folder and move any pref which has to do with Multiple Users. Put them on the Desktop. Restart and you should be OK.

I don't recommend using Multiple Users on OS 9x. Never had anything but problems with it myself. YMMV.
