Open the user account in ADUC, open the "Account" tab, click "Logon hours" and only enable the block of 8 hours that you wish the account to be active for on whichever day of the week is required. Also set "Expire at end of" to the current date so that the account is disabled at the end of that day.

easiest way is by powershell
use this example : Set-ADUser -AccountExpirationDate "05/01/2012 5:00:00 PM"
but you need to download Active Directory module for Windows PowerShell...
