Forcing disabled user to logoff

This is a very sensitive topic, especially in this tough economic times.  You may need to disable a bunch of users and you want them offline now!

Windows unlike Novell, does not really kick a disabled user out.  Some one sugggested doing this.

1) Disable Cache Logon + assign GPO  that run a login script “shutdown -l” to these group of disabled users.

2) “shutdown -l -m \\computername” then delete his computer account from domain.

Sounds a bit drastic, but it might work. Personally I prefer to reset the computer account.  From here . Might need logon to get pass the paywall.
