Is this related to Visual Basic? If so, what version?

Please provide more details about how you are doing things.

Obviously if you are writing a program, you can have it do pretty much what you please, based on the system time.

Hi ,
Are you talking of developing a VB application that will run on the server and control the Net surfing for you. Give some more details on what you need to be accomplished.

thanks

I'd suggest you try some searches for keywords like "VB terminate task". You'll probably find it's not too difficult.

What do you mean by "block end"?

Will this be running on the server (as ansumansahu asked), or on the browsing PC(s)? And could you actually bring up the browser within your application? If so, check out the WebBrowser control. (Not that this is necessary, but it would be bound to simplify your control over the browser).

Not sure how you'd go about blocking the browser, but for info on terminating a process, I'd suggest you have a look toward the end of this thread. (Specifically, message #7 and possibly later ones).

Hi I don't know if this is going to be much help for you, but I used to work in a school and we needed full controll over about 900/1000 PCs internet access, we used a combination of group policies for user access, and also a program called browse control (I think it is byy codeworks) which lets you simply turn on and off all users internet, or room by room or individual etc. You could also look into a program called Ranger for setting specific times for restricting access for certain user types on certain PCs.
