Number lock is stuck on but only when a certain user logs on...the other users are fine. Anyone know what to do to remedy this??

When that user is logged in, go into regedit and change the following key to 0 (zero).
HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Keyboard\InitialKeyboardIndicators

A temporary solution:
press and hold Shift, then press and release NumLock/ScrlLk

Assuming you are running Windows XP, this appears to be a solution: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314879

edit: The registry edit is easier to do, but be very careful that you don't change anything else or you may make the problem worse.
