Limiting a Students time on Vista Business!

#1
I want to put time limits on how long a student can use a Vista Business computer. I know it can be done using Home and Ultimate editions.

I am also looking for "FREE" software that will limit the time-anyone have any ideas?

Any help with this would be well appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Jesse Crawford

Thanks for the reply. However, my computers are not on a Domain, they are all part of a WorkGroup called Students. My problem is, I cannot find any Parental Controls in the Users Account or in the Control Panel.

Could someone please inform me where and how I can find Parental Controls in Vista Business, and, or how I can install that particular module.

Thanks for your help.

I think I have the answer to your needs! :)

there's this software that's used in the computer cafe's I have it somewhere on my computer if you could give me about an hour or so I could try and upload it to mega upload or something for you to download it :P
it's basically a TIME-Limit software.

you need 1 host computer for the server version and all you gotta do then is install the client version on every other computer you want to control!
the software is pretty neat ;) , that's how I keep my brother under control :D

Hi GKahn:

I was looking for that software program you were going to upload somewhere. I am not sure where and what you are referring to - please explain how I can access the time limiting software. Thanks in advance.
