Is there is a way to time out login on XP?

Looking for a way to time out an account login on XP.

I dont believe there is a built in software tool to do what you want in windows XP. There are however many third party software solutions. I read about this one in PC Magazine seemed pretty good and has a free trial: http://www.softwaretime.com/

Good luck!
