    You could use a vbscript that checks who the user is logging in and if they don't match the ones you set it automatically logs them off?

    One of the easiest ways I have found is to set up security groups of people I don't want to log on in certain areas ... and then assign those groups via GPOs in 'deny logon locally'. It can get a bit messy as you have to remember to add new users to these groups by default and then remove them if they need access.

    Surely it makes more sense to set 'Allow Log on Locally' rather than denying everyone except 1 person?

    Which is exactly what 'Allow Log on Locally' in Local / Domain Security Policy is designed to do. Remove everyone except those you want to have access.

    Yeah that thought did occur to me.

    Limit Logon from Microsoft has been mentioned somewhere. May be Grommit should do a forum search for it. He may find something useful.

    Yeeeeees, but so what? Regardless of whoever is denied logon; if you aren't allowed logon - then you can't, which is what the OP wanted.

    LimitLogon is some horrible vbscript Microsoft released to supposedly only allow a certain number of concurrent logons at any one time. It's not for restricting logons on certain machines to certain people (and it's awful anyway!).
