I have a user that I setup a GPO to restrict certain areas. Is there a setting so that user cannot access the Task Manager? I am running my GPO of a Windows 2008 server. Thanks!

User Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Logon/Logoff

Look for "Disable Task Manager" under there. When Enabled, this policy will disable the task manager.

I have looked at this and would like to know if there is a way to just lock down the User tab within the Task Manager? I don't want users to be able to log another user out but I still want to be able to end a program in case it locks up. Any ideas?

I don't know of a way to disable just that tab, however I believe only Administrators can actually logoff other users via that tab. Are the users members of an Administrators group at present which is giving them this power?

Test it to be sure, but I believe non-admins will see the tab but not be able to really do anything there.  That's one approach you could try.
