    Log off user with task manager - access denied

    I'm logged on to Vista with an admin account and when I try to use task
    manager to force log off a user with limited account I get the msg "User
    <usrname> (SessionId=1) could not be logged off. Access is denied."

    The user is disconnected and UAC is on. I need to find a way to log this
    user off as the account is left running too often.
