Win.  7 user permissions are very different to XP and earlier OS versions.

This is specific for the administrator account.  I have about 250 XP machines and about 200 Windows 7 machines (recently deployed).  I am trying to remote in to a Windows 7 machine as administrator to troubleshoot a user's problem.  The user is logged in and they must give the administrator permission to log them off.  Some users click on Deny not allowing the administrator to log in.  This didn't work this way with XP.  Is there a way to disable required permission from a logged in user to allow the administrator to RDP in to a Windows 7 machine?

Not to my knowledge, but another expert may have a work-around to this? .....
