Are you sure that you are looking at the same explorer instance.

Every time you open a file explorer window, you start an explorer process (same process name). I suspect that you will be able to find an explorer process or two for user A.

Try opening a distinct program eg notepad etc

well user A is always logged in and anytime user B is logged it will open a process in user B's name but if user B isn't logged in it will open in the normal user A names

so it sounds like you are using the default administration mode (2 user max) so all users share the same process and permission space).
So given that A is always logged in, B is always the last one to log in (top of thelisT0 and will show as the owner of all tasks until he logs out.

Terminal server would give you full separation, but that is a licensed product.

That's my guess, its been a while since I studied the ins and outs of Windows.
