Hi yolunga2000,

On the domain controller, edit the event viewer to log all logon attempts. You can use this to verify if the ISP is actually loggin in.

The only way to make sure that they cannot login is to chech all accounts. Make sure they don't have an account and reset all other user's passwords (if it's a small domain).
