    I know how to log users off from other names, but so do people in my family. Now my mom and my sister always stay logged on, even when they have nothing running. I log them off, but they get pissed and they log me off. I was wondering if there is a way to stop other users from logging me off without changing the user to limited. Thanks

    You can try looking through the Group Policy (START-->RUN-->gpedit.msc)

    Other than that, no.

    Simply lock the machine ;)
    Press CTRL-ALT-DELETE and click 'Lock machine'. No one can then log u off or do anything without ur valid password entered.

    or you can shortcut it by pressing the Windows key + L together.

    Set their account as limited user seem to be the only way, then they will not be able to log you off while password protected since only a user with Admin rights is the only user able to log someone off, as long as they do not know your password this should work or use Group Policy to disable the logoff option, however this would affect all users.

    U could also remove them from the admin group of users if they r a member of that group. I know that somewhere in the computer management console I thinks its under users u can change what a limited account can and can't do more.

    Hope this ideas and stuff help u
