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)?

Thanks

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.

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

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.
