There is a process 'vmtoolsd' whose command is /usr/bin/vmtoolsd -n vmusr left when a user logs out. I have to type root password to shutdown or restart because of this. How to prevent this from happening? And what package provide this command? I will remove the package to get rid of the problem as a last resort. I don't need to run virtual machines on my Fedora 19 machine anyway since the CPU doesn't support virtualization and performance is ugly.
