A simple solution is to make a logoff in a logon script e.g.
if "%USERNAME%"=="B" if "%computername%"=="MACHINEX" \\server\netlogon\logoff.exe
it's a easy to maintain but a determined user B could log in anyway!
A sturdier solution:
map an Unix group to a Windows group e.g. "Undesirables"
make B a member of "Undesirables"
set security to "deny all" for the group "Undesirables" in C: C:\Documents and Settings ....
on all machines where B is unwanted.
It's a bit difficult to stay on a machine where you can't read a damn thing :-)
