    Does anyone know of any good software that I can download for free that will lock a computer workstation at a specific time automatically?

    I have two PC workstations which need to be locked throughout the day and only be acccessable during lunchtime and coffee breaks. As I am not around all the time, in order to put in a password, it would be good if the software could unlock the PCs automatically at the start of break and then lock again at the end.

    Any advice or help in this matter would be much appreciated.

    Don't know what you are talking about mate. :wink:

    Seriously though, I got two computers for the lads to fcuk about on out of hours and they just take the piss. I have had words but since I am not in the factory all the time I can't monitor the usage. The Chairman is going menstrual over it and this is a last resort before ditching the PCs in the Thames.
  7. I'll have them, as long as you rip the Hard drives out of them first. I'm not doing bird for your snags sunshine.

    My bold.
  12. Fair enough. We all have "special interests".
  13. Get your sysadmin to set up OpenDNS to keep the users' sticky eyeballs out of FaceTube, pr0n sites and the like.

    It annoys the bejasus out of them. :D
  14. I think there is a way you can limit the time allowed, providing they log into the PC using their own account?

    I can't remember, but I think it's either under Control Panel/User Accounts or under Security Centre - and even if they don't have their own accounts, just turn on the 'Guest' account and limit the internet usage. I think that if you try get onto the internet it'll prompt you for the admin password, so it'll limit what times they can get on the internet.

    Learnt how to do this a while back when I leant my laptop out to a youth group I worked with - not only did I get a nice bill for that night but plus a few gig of quality legal porn! Live and learn! :s
