you can use tskill command from command prompt, but that wont kill processed started by a user. You will have to pass process id's to this command. For more info see the command help.

Try this command:
taskkill /f /fi "USERNAME eq <TheUserID>" /im *
"/f" will force the processes to be closed, "/fi ..." is a filter for the user id specified (you can add TheDomain\ in front if necessary), and "/im *" will kill all processes started by the user id.
