I found following record in the windows event log:

Application popup: 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 wonder is it possible to get username of that who tried to login and got that message.

Doesn't the event log record have a user account attached to it? – Harry Johnston Aug 20 '12 at 21:17
@HarryJohnston, no – misha nesterenko Aug 21 '12 at 7:47

I have found this to happen when I have more than one profile logged in on my computer (administrator and guest, for example). It means you have launched 2 profiles. The other person is the person who used that profile (it might be you).

The other person is definitely not me :). That is why I want to know if it is possible find that other user. – misha nesterenko Aug 20 '12 at 13:48
Who else is using your computer? – Xavierjazz Aug 20 '12 at 13:50
If you are the administrator, put a password on the other profiles. – Xavierjazz Aug 20 '12 at 13:54
