I need a script that will take a list of users account log in names and find out what computers they are logged into.  We have 2008R2 domain controllers and Windows 7 and XP clients.  I am familiar with psloggedon, batch files, vbscript and powershell.  We still have mostly XP clients so i definitely need it work on them.

You really can't do this.  The only way would be to poll the entire network and only for those computers that were on, would you get who was logged onto them.

A better way might be to set up login scripts that record user logon activity to text files, and if you wanted to see who logged on where, just open the text file.  There's a few approaches here:
