    This is probably an easy question but I could not find this anywhere. If I
    am logged on after a standard user's time is over (set through parental
    controls) how can I log that user off without changing their time, logging
    in as them, logging them off, logging back in as an admin, then changing the
    controls back? Seems there should be a way to log off a user form the admin
    side...

    TIA

  2. John,

    You should be able to logoff the other user account via Task Manager (Users tab).

  4. It works if you click "Show processes from all users" (in the Processes tab) and continue the UAC prompt. Or, launch Taskmgr.exe from an elevated Command Prompt.
