Limit internet access to home school site

November 3, 2010 at 08:39:59
Specs: Windows XP
My child is home schooled and logs into classes via the internet. I would like to disable access to other sites, such as Facebook, uTube, etc. ONLY while he is logged into classes... without having to set up special passwords.

Is this possible?

Thx.

I dont have my laptop with me to test it, but this might help.

1. Make sure you are logged in as the administrator of the computer.
2. Press the Start and click Control Panel.
3. Under User Accounts and Family Safety, click set up parental controls for any user.
4. If prompted, (type your password and) select Continue.
5. Click the account you want to add parental controls.
6. Click on Time limits.
7. Block out the time you don’t want the account to be able to login.
8. Press Ok.

That looks like exactly what I need. However when I talked to the school's "techies", I felt like I just got a blank-stare as a response... which leads me to believe this type of Profile-level option isn't available. I'll check further to see if this is possible. Thx.

Yeah, the "Parental-Control" is really NOT the way I want to go (tried it and caused more confussion than resolving/limiting the problem).

You need to either buy parental control software and install it on the pc or access the router which hopefully has content filtering and scheduling. This would be the best place to limit web domain access. This is assuming you have a router at home.
