    Welcome to TSG!

    There are software applications out there that can set controls for computer use.
    I took a trip over to www.tucows.com (try before you buy site)
    (Windows, System & Utilities > User Management and then searched for XP compatible apps)

    The first one I came up with ... 1st Security Center Pro 3.1
    (http://www.tucows.com/system/preview/258636.html) ... allows for The "User Working Time" function allows you to limit working time for your children, colleagues or students. You can define several time intervals and durations.

    A very well known protection applicaton is Net Nanny www.netnanny.com
    They have a try-before-you-buy at http://www.netnanny.com/products/freetrials.html

    The cost of these apps is minimal and they sure do provide a great level of comfort (for you) and security (for your wee ones)

    I hope this helps
