Hi all,

i've look around and didn't find a solution for my problem so i decide to turn to the pros.

I have a customer who I just installed a server on server2012 DC configure. There is 4 clients computer on Windows 7 Pro. Everything work fine. Last week he called me and asked me if it was possible to block any browser on the computer and only allow it between 12:00 and 13:00 (lunch break).

Im pretty sure there's a way to do it and thats why am asking you help.

Thanks for your time and help!

You would have to do this by getting some type of firewall something like a Sonicwall or web filtering as there is no way to stop a program from running during cretin hours without buying some type of program or device. I would suggest looking at Sonicwall or Sophos. They both can integrate with AD and i believe they can do this type blocking.

Thanks for your reply Zindel1,

i'll take a look at this. I just installer a Cisco ISA550w, i'll see if i can do it with this one.

Thanks again.

There are several ways.
The best would be to do it at the gateway/firewall and deny internet access for certain IP ranges or port ranges by blocking certain ports (80 for http for example).

You could also configure measures right at the clientside: if the gateway setting is not needed for anything but internet access, you could setup a scheduled task that sets a fake gateway at 12 and returns to the correct one at 1 pm.
Also you could use a "kill-script" that simply every few seconds kills processes called firefox.exe/iexplore.exe/chrome.exe/... but that could be circumvented simply by using renamed exe files.
