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.

What about those ******* that spend all day on ARRSE and RR though?
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.

Indeed, hence why I have a PC along with other members of management. The guys on the bench have no reason to use computers for work purposes. Their trade has changed very little in 200 years.

No porn? What kind of a fcuked up place do you work in? :wink:

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

How to configure logon hours for a user

Now that you are familiarized with the command, it's time to learn how to add parameters in order to limit logon access for a time interval.

Let's suppose the account for which we want to define the time interval access already exists. The command will look like this:

net user "user account" /time:M-F,14:00-16:00

Replace the text between the quotes with the desired account. Using the above command line, the user has rights to access its account between 14 and 17 every day from Monday to Friday. In case your son/daughter comes home from school around two o'clock he/she will be able to logon until 16 o'clock (when you come back from work).

Please notice that only sharp values are accepted. You can choose any hour but not subdivisions like 14:15 or 15:36.

You can even setup time intervals for different days as following:

net user softpedia /time:W,10am-5pm;T,2pm-3pm;F-Sa,9:00-16:00

One more thing, the week days' abbreviations are M, T, W, Th, F, Sa, Su.


It is your choice how you schedule the computer usage time.
I've not tried or tested this!
