Restricting Login

Is there a way to restrict login to a single user in an AD environment.  So that User A cannot log into User B's machine.  Is there a way to prevent administrator's from logging into B's machine as well, with admin credentials?  (Don't ask why...)

If you go to the user account in Active Directory
Click on the Accounts Tab there is a Log On To Button
You can set what machines that account can log onto.

In Active Directory, you can select a user account, then:

1) Open properties,
2) Click on the "Account" tab,
3) Click on the "Start session in" button

Then you can choose whether this user can start a windows session in all computers, or just in some of them.
Though, you can do this for each user.

If it's only one computer and one user however, it would probably be simpler to use secpol.msc locally. Under Security settings > Local Polices > User Rights Assignment, use "Allow log on locally", "Allow log on through Terminal Services", and "Access this computer from the network" so that you can control local accounts as well.
