    I have an XP Pro SP2 install with 2 user accounts. an admin account and a standard limited user account.

    What I want to do is prevent any net access from the limited user account and basically only allow access to a couple of games and nothing else.

    To Set restrictions:1. Click Start

    3. Type cmd in the run box and press enter.

    net user testuser /times:M-F,5pm-9pm; Sa,6am-9pm;Su,6am-9pm

    Where testuser is the local account name.
