We want to give an employee permissions to kill any user's processes and restart Windows Server 2008 servers, but don't want the employee to know or be able to change the administrator's password.  Is there a way to give a user all administrator permissions except being able to change the administrator's password?

Server Operators group gives some of these permissions.

I'm not sure it allows for killing processes, or services, but you could create a specific security policy that you deploy via GPO to these servers and add the "Server Admins" to the specific rights that your wanting.

You can give delegated rights and have granular control as to what permission the user can have,

have a look at the following link.
