- Expand the domain - Server and a list of connected processes will be shown
- Right click on the process and select 'Send Message' from the context menu

- You can then enter a title for the message and a message text. Click OK
To send from the command line perform use the MSG command,
msg <user> \[/time:<seconds>\] \[/w\] \[/server:<server name>\] <message>
C:\> msg savillj /w Get off that computer John!
The /w switch will force the administrators session to pause until the user has clicked OK to the message.
