Any sort of remote access to his machine like mmc might allow some settings. Remote to a switch or router might be easier.

I consider your actions rather childish.

Ditto jefro. I don't think the OP is telling the whole story.

I dont no how to explain you further. i am not much with computers also. i see my employee girl is keep chatting most of the time and not concrating on the duty. i am not willing to tell that time to time stop chatting. so i just want to disable her pc from receiving internet on few occatins. so i would tell her the net is down.

i cant go and pull the network cable form the router, coz the router is mounted on a wall which we both can see that.

its just a two computer work group. both running xp and share the same router.

Learn how to access your router.

You would then disable her access.

I used to have two configurations for my router at home. One that allowed the kids access and one that did not.

When their grades were bad I loaded the configuration that denied access. When they were good I would load the configuration to allow access.

This was all done from my pc.

Given the situation described this is your only option.

I will agree that it is tough to enforce a policy that seems so easy to break.

It would be in my opinion a better policy to access the router and setup access times. Then tell the employee that she will only be allowed access between this time and that time to do personal business.

I have stated before how dangerous it is to allow internet on a business computer. I'd disable it completely and put a junky computer in the corner to access only internet.

There is no business reason to lie to her.
