Kids PC Time Administrator is a software tool for parental control. It was designed to help parents restrict the time their children spend on the PC. It provides a multi user interface so that each user can have its specific settings. The program lets parents specify how long the computer can be used and to define users that can use the computer without any limitations. It can be used to schedule time intervals and the number of hours a child uses the computer each day of the week. The program can also prevent the use of the PC until a specified date, after a specified date or between specified dates. All the actions of a user can be recorded to a log file so that the parent will know exactly what the child did. The program's settings cannot be changed and the software itself cannot be uninstalled without the master password.

I work at home-like institute for youngsters. We are like big family and there is always argue about computer turns and how long are turns. We tried to manage with windows own user account limitters, and those helped a little. Then we decided to try some kind of program to give us more tools to limit computer usage. Kids PC Time Administrator gives us tools to schedule how much time kids use computer and create different plans for weekends. It's also useful to prevent usage of task manager and installing new software. We have many workers that may need to adjust the settings so its very good this program is easy to use and interface is simple. It made our weekdays less stressing.
