I am trying to find a simple way to find out which PC a particular user is logged onto.  So for example, I know userA is logged onto a PC on the domain, but I have no clue which PC that is.

If you have enabled Auditing for Account logon events, go to the Security Log in Event Viewer on your Domain Controller.  Filter on event ID 680, which will give you the name of the user account and the name of the workstation that it logged on from. (This will only assist you for users who are logging on using domain accounts - if your users are logging on using local accounts, you would need to query the Security log of each individual workstation to collect this information.)

Hope this helps.
