Windows Parental Controls?
Posted by: Nebuchadnezzar on January 2nd, 2015 @ 11:06AM

Anyone recommend a good program to limit kids on the computer to X hours a day? The stupid parental controls only lets you pick blockout periods and not total hours per day.

Windows ones work great for that if you quit clinging to 7 and upgrade.

•The in-box time restrictions were enhanced by providing ability to control total amount of time per day computer can be used (time allowance) in addition to ability to control times when computer can be used (curfew.) Curfew was available in previous versions of Windows.

Windows 8 really isn't that bad with a start menu. If you do ever get windows 8 then i HIGHLY recommend Classic Shell: http://www.classicshell.net/

Unfortunately I dont know of a good parental program but I would suggest setting up some filtering settings for internet browsing. You can use Opendns (https://www.opendns.com/) for free as web filtering service (block pr0n, gun, alcohol webpages). Just point your router to hand out their DNS server and any computer that connects will use your settings for web content.

Or just use the old fashioned method and watch them manually.

You could always make the jump straight to Windows 10 with the tech preview if you're feeling ambitious. I (mostly) skipped 8 as well, but I'm quite pleased with how 10 is shaping up. Enough so to migrate myself to a windows 10 install for my primary home system.

Same family control settings as 8, so you can set up hh/mm daily limits.
