    Hi guys,

    I am looking for a little bit of help, is there any way that I can restrict a users access to a desktop pc to be between a certain time. For example I want to stop our kids logging in to the PC before 7am and after 8pm, so they can only use it during the times between this.

    I think there is a way to do this locally without third party software, but i think I may be thinking of Windows Server. Anyway, is there anyway I can do this either with or without third party software... cheers. :)

    Create a Scheduled Task under their profile
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\shutdown.exe -l -f -c "You will now be logged off."
    Check the option to run only if "I am logged on"

    Thats not a bad idea at all seeing as the log on after will be locked out
