Windows Logon Time logs
I have a customer who wants to monitor when her child goes on the computer. She does NOT want a keylogger because she does not care about what he is doing, she just doesnt want him on the computer late at night.
What is a free program that will log What times people are on logged on the computer and for how long

Event Viewer -> Security Events
Tells you the times people log on.

Right but it doesnt tell you when they log off

Well eithway if it does or doesnt, I have not seen that in xp Home but I need a simple program for an end user that doesn know a lot of computers can use as easy as she can read her emails.

I'm not sure how much easier you can go than the Event Viewer. The picture demonstrates the simplicity. I'll look around for something else, but I'd seriously look into Event Viewer.

Done a simple scheduled task with the "shutdown -s -t 300" command that run every day at 10pm. That will leave 5 mins to the kid to close is program before the computer shut down.
