rouge processes

Often when i do a ps -ef |grep user there are sh processes however the users are not actually logged in. Does any one know what i could do to automatically kill off these processes.

First you should find out what those processes are actually
doing. What are their parent processes? Do they have any
children? It is normal for shell processes to be running jobs
of various types either at a scheduled time or continuing
after the user logs off. I do it all the time myself Smilie
