    Daily time limits on sofware use

    Does anyone know of software that can time the daily use of specific programs (specifically, games) and lock out a child from using the program after a specific daily time limit has been passed. My son has trouble controlling the amount of time he spends playing computer games, and I am looking for a software solution to the program.

    Thanks for any help offered.

    Unplug it and put the cord away.

    I don't know of anything that I would trust to do the job, except for Mike's solution - that's the best bet. Password protect the machine so that access requires a password that only you know, and take the rest into your own hands. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>
