Is there any way to tell what PC a user last logged in from in Active Directory? Basicly I want to see if a certain user is logging in on more than one PC with out them knowing we are checking. I would think there is somewhere in AD that shows where users are logging in from. Thanks in advance!

You'll need to enable Auditing for logons - both successful and failed.

Check the security logs on the server.

Be aware that logging Successful logons will increase the log size a fair bit so ensure you have defined an adequate size for it.

You can filter the logs when you look at them by user and then see what PC names he/she has logged into.
