1.If you wish to disconnect a single user then you need to know what machine name he's at. Then you can modify the batch file to
net session \\computername /delete

2.1. Create a batch file and place the following
net session /delete

2.2. Create a scheduled task to run the batch file
If you disconnect users who are accessing shared resources, they might lose data. You may want to warn connected users before you disconnect them.
