Limiting User Login Times
Posted on 2003-12-04
I am experiencing problems with people logging into other peoples computers and screwing things up. This is at a site where people are working 24/7. Due to funds there are only 4 computers and they are all on a workgroup, there is no server.
On one of the computers people are logging into that users account and deleting his/her files. The problem is the user will not listen to reason and keeps on giving out her password, and the security guard will not tell anybody who is gaining access to the computer. Quite a situation, I know, but we're working with an organization who doesn't seem to care for their own rules.
So what I was hoping to do was prevent anyone from logging onto that computer during a certain time frame. The OS is Windows 2000 Pro. I don't think it is possible to do it unless it is part of a domain, but does anybody know of a way that I'm not thinking of? How about some free/really cheap 3rd party software that will do this?
I'd like to avoid this user from being locked down so tight that he/she cannot do anything on the computer.
Thanks in advance,
