Windows 7: Remotely locking W7?

Remotely locking W7?

Hi. I have a script I run so that if I email myself a command like "lock pc1" it will lock the workstation on that computer. Works great on Windows XP and prior but I can't seem to get it working on Windows 7. Anyone have any ideas how to do it? C# would be best, but I'd take VB/vbscript or even a command line tool at this point hehe.

Oh yea, the caveat is the locking is being done across the network. I don't wanna lock the workstation that runs the code, I want to lock a remote one. Thanks.
