    What do you mean by "shared user account"?

    Shared Active Directory account (user information does not exist for an invidual user).

    If I'm following you correctly... the answer is "No, you can't check if an account is being shared by many users"

    There's really no such thing as a "shared" account... Active Directory has no way of knowing if the same person is logging in each time or if it's another person who uses the same username/pasword.
