How are you going to determine when a user goes to another computer?

And what's the ultimate goal of this endeavor? Are you trying to allow a user to pick up where they left off on MachineA from MachineB? Or is there some other goal?

I know that I have to create a new Log in.
I just wanted to know if there is a way to edit the CurrentUser to make it a little easier.
Thanks for you help
