I don't know why you couldn't, because I just tried it, first from the administrator account logging out a user account with admin privileges, then just the reverse, and it worked both times.

Hello A3CIB, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Yes, you can log off a user from Task Manager. The tutorial below can help show you how to. You have to click on Show processes from all users to run Task Manager as administrator first to be able to though.

Hope this helps,

A3CIB,

Look at the note in step 3 in the tutorial link above. You will need to do this from within an administrator account, and click on the Show processes from all users button in Task Manager first.
