- Is there a program that can keep track of the flow of bytes for my
high speed internet connection? There seems to be some sites, that I
visit, that upload/download a lot more information than others and
since my internet supplier only update my account after at least 24
hours, I only find out the next day without knowing where I spent all
Aslo, is there a software that I can install on a computer that
could tell me what software was used, for how long, how many times, etc.
- I have seen, in another forum, that you can restrict the use of
internet in a "command" window using the "net user" instruction. There
must be also a way to restrict the use of the computer itself.
- I can't speak for other flavors of Windoze but in the Win2000 screensaver
there is a "3D Text (Open GL)".
One of the displays is time.
Say you go into it and set up the time display, give it a password (don't
forget it), set the idle time to 1 minute and let the time-out take it into
ScreenSaver mode. Tell her it will not be unlocked until ??:??.
I know this is not quite what you wanted but it will sure make using the
computer very user UNfriendly.
Unfortunately on boot up it can still be used until it go into screensaver
mode. Then she will have to power off and reboot. I can feel her PAIN?
