You can try.....

Verify that all of Password Manager’s data is cleared from the registry, the Application Data folder, and the synchronization point.
An administrator must manually delete the data in the following locations:
The server-based portion of the user's data under the \\<Server>\citrixsync$\People\userid folder
The MetaFrame folder under the user application data under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Citrix\MetaFrame Password Manager
The user's \Documents and Settings\<user name>\ApplicationData\Citrix\MetaFrame Password folder

I think it is related to to the users account on the citrix server or where ever the citrix password manager stores the users profile because if I login in with another account on the same computer, it prompts me to sav the passwords but with these 2 other users, I get the error message that I stated above.
so what would I have to delete for the users and where would I do that?

Is there an icon for the Citrix application when the user authenticate?

I found the issue..
I had to go into the Citrix App Center and then select the user configuration and right click on it, then I had to select the user, then select delete user from the Central store.
I next had to go to the users pc and go into the following folder: c:\user\appdata local\citrix\metaframe password manager,, and delete this folder.
Once theses steps were completed, the error went away...
