Cannot add user - user already has permission error msg

How can we add a user "johnd" to this PC?
Pentium 4 new PC with Windows 2000 Pro has no user called johnd. There was a computer name of johnd at one point. Now when we try to add user johnd we get the following message:
"The user johnd could not be added becaue this user already has permission to use this computer."
• Adding from Control Panel/Users and Passwords/Add
• Logged in to local machine only as Administrator/admin
We have deleted references to johnd from registry (profile keys, apparantly)
