I found this of interest. The source is Microsoft TechNet.....


Subject: Setting Restricted Login Hours on XP Standalone System

I recently had to contact Microsoft Tech Support for assistance on this so I wanted to post the article on the web incase someone else had this same issue.

Situation: You want to restrict the logon days / times of a user account in XP and are a standalone machine.

Reason: You may wish to restrict teens who arrive home before adult supervision from accessing your broadband always on connection, limit employees to only work hours access etc..

Steps:

To Set restrictions:

Click Start
Click Run
Type cmd in the run box and press enter.
The following is a sample of what you would type:
net user testuser /times:M-F,5pm-9pm; Sa,6am-9pm;Su,6am-9pm

Where testuser is the local account name.

To Remove Restrictions:

Click Start
Click Run
Type cmd in the run box and press enter.
The following is a sample of what you would type:
net user testuser /times:all

Where testuser is the local account name.

I hope someone else finds this useful as I did.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
