    Default How to Restrict login hours of a particular user in Windows

    If you want to restrict a certain user to login a computer in between certain time in case you run a business than the following trick will help you. To restrict a users logon hours , use the net user command. These commands are used from the Command Prompt.

    Go to: Start > RUN > and type cmd

    Below are some examples that you can use:

    1 - net user Naina /time:M-T,08:00-17:00 (In this case user Naina is allowed to login between Monday to Friday, in between 8 AM to 5 PM)

    2 - net user Vishal /time:M-F,8am-5pm

    3 - net user Gates /time:M,4am-5pm;T,1pm-3pm;W-F,8:00-17:00

    4 - net user Shine /time:all (this one means this user can always log on)

    Note:You can only restrict when a user can log on to the system. There is no way to force a user to log off when their hours expire, without any third party script or software.

    ...and for those that might prefer the GUI route, and have Administrative level access, you can also restrict hours using Active Directory.

    Well, i think Parental Controls in Windows Vista and Windows 7 will do it very easily and perfectly whether the user is currently logged in or not in the computer...
