How to Restrict User Logon Hours in Windows XP

Sometimes if your children use a lot of computer you might want to restrict their windows logon hours so that they have control over their computer usage and concentrate on studies. Well, it’s not just children, you might also like to control any users logon hours on your pc. You can do this either by using a software or by a simple windows command. If you wanna go the software way then you gotta pay. So, let’s go the easy way, i.e. by a simple windows command. Here’s how you do it:

Go to start> Run

Now type cmd and hit enter.

You need to make use of the net user command, check out for some examples below:
net user joel /time:M-F,08:00-17:00
net user joel /time:M-F,8am-5pm
net user joel /time:M,4am-5pm;T,1pm-3pm;W-F,8:00-17:00
net user joel /time:all (this allows user to logon at any time, on any day)

Type any one of the above and replace joel with your windows username.

Note: You can only restrict the user by one-one hour (for instance 14:00, 17:00, not 14:30 or 17:45). You also use the abbreviation for the day (that is, M,T,W,Th,F,Sa,Su)
