Time limit for internet explorer, firefox

Is there a way to limit usage of internet browsers (esp IE and Firefox) to specific time of day (ex: can only browse internet from 12 nn to 2 pm)?

Greetings, maharlika !

You can limit Internet usage with iPhantom

iPhantom also has other great monitoring features.

Best wishes!

Do you have a router, or are you directly connected? Some routers have built-in ways to limit access to ports & time-of-day etc. Just read the router manual.

Just chiming in to say that there is at least one other question like this in the miscellaneous thread, and I'm not convinced that a techno solution is the way to go. Unless you have a particularly difficult child (for example, ADD, bi-polar, physically larger and more aggressive, etc.), talking and setting up expectations for behavior is more appropriate.

The tech solutions may be elegant, but they won't work after the child finds a workaround or after the child leaves your house.

What you want is a child who can self-regulate, and the best way to teach a child to do that is to set expectations and enforce those expectations rigorously.

That said, if you are working with Windows XP, you can set up an account for the user that does not include access to browsers (am I correct about this War 1?). Then, when you want to allow browser use, simply be present and log the user in as a different account that does have access to a browser.

Yo, I saw this just yesterday, looks like it will do what you want ...


This seems more focused  (for your needs) than "iPhantom" and simpler to setup and use too.

>You can limit Internet usage with iPhantom

Did you mean "with iBoss" ?
David, I mean iPhantom, a link that I posted above

Easy way to do such thing, thinking some 3rd party tools would be a nice hand.
BTW,I have searched and compared most tools from internet, I recommend IMonitor Power keyloggyer or Spector. You use below link download trial version.

Sorry, cant find a trial for Spector.
