I have a computer name and an IP address, and want to know who is currently logged on.
I have tried PsLoggedon, but that uses File and Print sharing to look at the registry, we have F&P sharing turned off.
With XP you could just try to RDP in to the PC and try to log in and it would tell you who was logged in and give you the option to cancel or log them off. But with Windows 7 it does not give you a username.
Any other way to find out?

If you click Yes, the user who is logged on will receive the message to response. Meanwhile, you will see the user name. If the user denies the connection, you will receive the feedback.

I don't mean to be disrespectful, but I have the same problem, but you didn't really answer the question.
Problem with your answer is: Users must get a "Do you want to relinquish control" message splashed up on their system. For some users, this would be a frightening experience.
I want to know ahead of time, so I can make a phone call to them, prepare them that I am about to take control, please close their apps, and I'll be logging in to cover a need [one they may not know they even had...]
So allow me to rephrase a little and repose the question: How can we tell remotely, especially on Windows 7 systems, whom is logged-in at any given moment, without sending a splash message that we want to take control?
