local locker = true
local failed = true

rednet.open("right")
while locker do
attempted_login = false
term.clear()
term.setCursorPos(1,1)
print("Welcome to a USERS PC : Roaming Profile Enabled")
print("What would you like to do?")
print("[1] Login (*)")
print("[2] Shutdown")
write("> ")
local input = read()
if input == "2" then
  os.shutdown()
elseif input == "1" then
  attempted_login = true
  print("Please login...")
  write("Username: ")
  local username = read()
  write("Password: ")
  local password = read("*")
  rednet.send(password_server, username, true)
  senderId, message, distance = rednet.receive(5)
  if password == message then
   failed = false

Odd, there doesn't seem to be any problem in line 27.
senderId, message, distance = rednet.receive(5)
Where are you calling this program? Is this the "startup" program, or is this in some other program you are running?

Well I ran your program without any errors so I'm not too sure why you would be having a problem.
And I just spent a little while trying to force the error with no luck so something else you are doing must be wrong.
Sorry I couldn't find the problem, just letting you know I tried.

Did you retype the program here or copy and paste it? Be sure the actual program has rednet.receive and not rednet.recieve.

So you retyped the whole program to put it on here? Interesting... well glad it's fixed.

Have this program (and the other one) print out what they're sending and receiving, so that you can confirm that they match up and so forth.
