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.
