We have many computers that are used by multiple people and occasionally someone locks their PC when they leave and the next user can't log in.  Right now, we'd have to either reboot the PC or log in and then log off it can be used again.  Wondering if there is a simple command line prompt that will do such a thing.  We use shutdown -r -m \\computername to reboot a PC but is there something like logoff \\computername that will log the user currently on that computer off?
