How do you lock computer clock?

I am trying to limit my kids computer time and have installed Netnanny (garbage) and Kidswatch (much better), but there is one problem. I limit the time of day that they can be on the computer, but they just reset the system clock. I am running windows XP Pro. The Kidswatch program is suppose to lock out the changing of the time, but it doesn't work. I can't be around durning the day when they are home from school and need to limit their use. Does anybody have any ideas? Oh, one more thing: They run Starswars Galaxy and it will not work unless I give them administrator rights. XP is different from Windows NT, in that I don't know how to limit (read only) access to selected files. It appears to be all or none. Do I have to move all of the files to a shared directory and limit it there?
Thanks in advance

See if you can get a domain going and set a policy for logon times allowed.

As for the rights, you should be able to just right click on any individual file and set the attributes

Hmm tell them the next violation they lose the game and are not Admins The other is you might be able to create a group and give the group admin but limit it's app access (of course I think they could change that as admin)

You would think, but it doesn't work that way in XP. At least on my 4 machines. Keep the ideas coming please. Oh, I have very smart teenagers whom aren't afraid to search the web for solutions to time restrictions.

Re: How do you lock computer clock?

If it's the net your worried about that can be done using a firewall and limit the time of that IP. If your using XP then you simply need to adjust the privileges of the user account that you set up for them. That will keep them from being able to change any system information such as time.

Sorry but it sounds like they are really messing with you, drop the hammer and revoke admin. Then make it clear why they lost that game and things can suck harder if they push you

The starswars galaxy program requires read/write access to work. It updates the program all the time. I have not been able to enable read/write access without giving admin rights. Any links that might give step by step?

I have a D-Link DI-707P firewall/router, and it doesn't limit time while you are on. It just keeps your from logging on after a time limit (crappy if you ask me).

You must be using NTFS to have access to file permissions. You can convert using the convert command.

Look, lean, believe!!

Re: How do you lock computer clock?

Windows XP allows you to set up an Administator account. This account can restrict access to other accounts for time/date ect. Don't let them know the password or access the Admin account. We use this at work on all our XP machines. Good luck.
