Go to Microsofts website and search for shared computer tool kit. It is a to set up a computer so that others can only do what you let them.

What kind of modem/router are you using? My D-link has many capabilities to do just this. My old Netgear had these settings, also. I was able to establish a 'static' DHCP to my kids computer, then create a filter, blocking internet access from 12am to 6am. Also, keywords can be used to block access to certain sites, such as Myspace. These policies only apply to their machine, my office pc and laptop are exempt. While the Public Profile from Microsoft is an excellent tool (it's excellent for public machines in the libraries we serve), it can be overwhelming to set up. First, it needs at least a 1 gig (or 10 percent of the drive) for an unspecified partition the program needs to read and write to. Once set up, it's a great tool for locking a particular account out of anything imaginable. It can also time sessions out after a specified time, etc. Might I suggest, putting in a boot up (BIOS) password, and shutting down the comp at a specified time?

You really need 3rd party products to do what you want as Windows does not have the features or control over net access.

Cybersitter from

or Net Nanny from
