Restrict user A to login his particular machine only and prohibit others except the administrator to login on the same machine.

Two suggestions, Remove the domain users group from the list of users in the local computer's users group (and add the user in question)  And/or in Active directory (user account properties) set the computer(s) that the user is allowed to login to.

You can try this.
Edit the local policy on the computer and set the Allow Logon Locally to only the accounts you want.

You COULD do that, but modify the local groups is easier and more common.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Go to Start > Run and type 'gpedit.msc' and press enter.
In the next window, expand Computer Configuration > Windows Settings > Security Settings > Local Policies  and select User Rights Assignment
Now on the right pane double click on 'Deny Logon Locally' and add the required users in the same. And restart the system and have a check.
