    Trouble:

    How can I set the usage time on my computer, so that I can prevent my kids to use computer too much? It is impacting their studies.

    It can be the case with teacher students, employer employee, or parents and kids where user wants to restrict the user of computer to other in some way.



    To this I would answer that the best way to sort it out is to talk to your kids, but if that does not work in your case, we have a solution for you. Microsoft Windows Vista as a built in feature of setting the computer usage policy.



    The feature we are talking about is Parental controls. In this article we are going to discuss how you can set the parental controls and how you can use it.


    Fix:

    In first place, you need to have an Administrator right account. After this create a user account for your kids with limited privileges. To create a new user, go to Control Panel > User Accounts and create a new limited account if it is does not already exist.



    Set up Parental Control



    1. Go to Control Panel > Parental controls as shown below:

    3. Apply the parental control and set the usage settings as shown below:

    4. You can set the Web Filter to filter abusive or objectionable websites. You can restrict games and certain applications like chats etc. You can also define hours of the day for which the computer use is allowed or for which it is blocked for the user.



    See the example below, in which, there allowed usage is for 4 hours each day on weekdays and 6 hours on weekends.
