    As Administrator Unable to Logoff Other Users

    I am an Administrator on my home PC running Windows Vista Home Premium. Using
    Task Manager, I am unable to logoff other 'disconnected' users. I get an
    error message that access is denied.

    Please help.

    Thanks

    You will need to run Task Manager elevated to log off other users.

    Start Task Manager, go to Processes tab and click "Show processes from all
    users". This will restart Task Manager with elevated privileges. Then go to
    Users tab and log off user in question.
