comment Removing a process from launchd without restarting
Done! I used sudo kill -9 `sudo launchctl list | grep peruser.502 | cut -f1` and that appears to work perfectly. Thanks heaps Gordon, and Neil for your help. Maybe put this as a separate answer?

Finder isn't actually running though, it keeps trying to via launchd, but doesn't actually run.

comment Removing a process from launchd without restarting
I have tried launchctl unload and sudo -u [user] launchctl unload where [user] is the user with Finder trying to run, but the first gets launchctl: Error unloading: com.apple.Finder and the second gets Bug: launchctl.c:2325 (23930):13: (dbfd = open(g_job_overrides_db_path, O_RDONLY | O_EXLOCK | O_CREAT, S_IRUSR | S_IWUSR)) != -1

It is an internet kiosk, and it is much harder to exploit if Finder is not running.
