General Software Discussion / Re: IDEA - User timer and lock out

Thanks for your input.  I've been all over Windows and the net trying to find something that suits me but there isnt anything.  There is something called Watchdog but its far too intricate and a little faulty.

I'd pay for this to be done to my specs. 

I just need something very small / light that can can monitor and restrict the amount of time a user can use their account.

General Software Discussion / IDEA - User timer and lock out
« on: July 03, 2009, 01:06 AM »
Hi, this may be available but I could find it.  Forgive me Im a novice. 

I have a couple of teenage kids and I have given them a PC each and they login to their own User Accounts.  One is on Win XP the other Vista.  I have the admin account on both. 

They would spend 24 hrs a day on them if they could.  I'm sick of manually monitoring them.

I need a simple program that restricts how much time their account can be open in a day.  It would need to run hidden in the background and record a users time in every 24hr period regardless of turning on and off etc, and if that time exceeds a preset amount (adjustable depending on the day) the program locks out their account or stops any programs from running until the clock goes into a new day or they enter a password to reset the timer.

Is it possible?

Dave
