    time limits (xp home)

    Hi all, This may sound like a strange post but here goes. I have three kids who are always fighting about getting on the computer. Its this whole AIM thing, (middle and high school ages). I want to limit their time on the computer to one hour daily. They all have seperate login names and passwords. Is there away to do this? I was hoping to do something where the computer times out and shuts down after an hour. Am I thinking in the wrong direction? Thank You
    Kevin

    I found a Google for "limit children computer time" brought up a fair range of hits.

    Good luck!

    I think what you need is ComputerTime 1.0. At $40 it a bit pricy, but it's the only software dedicated to timing I turned up on a Google search for this task. HTH <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Edited to add ... Enuff PC is $5 cheaper and appears to do exactly what you want.
