I assume from this that you are using 2008 Foundation Server. Unfortunately, Foundation Server is limited to a maximum of 15 local accounts including this used by SQL and Antivirus, so the only way "around" this EULA message is to delete some accounts, and if that is not an option and you need more than 15 accounts then Foundation Server isn't for you and you should be looking at Standard.

The error is pretty straightforward. Looks like you are running the Foundation edition of Windows server. That product is sold at a price point much lower than server standard, or even server essentials, but the trade-off to get that price break is tat you cannot have more than fifteen users.

You either need to delete old/unused accounts, or if you actually have more than fifteen users, it is time to upgrade from foundation.

When you say delete users, do you mean go into Active Directory>Users, then deleting some there?

Since foundation can work as a DC or in a work group, the user count can be AD or local. So where you manage users for that server.
