    How do I log off other users of my computer in Vista. I used to be able to do
    this in XP by opening task manager, selecting the account and logging them
    off. I have tried doing this in Vista but receive a message that says I am
    not allowed, even though they are set as standard users and I am the
    administrator.

    Hi Idavp,

    This tutorial will show you how to do this through Task Manager. You
    will just need to click on the "Show processes from all users" button
    first.

    Hope this helps you,
    Shawn

    Thanks Brink, I feel a bit silly now. Maybe if I'd looked a bit further than
    the end of my nose I could have solved this one myself. Thanks again.
