Can you limit a user account access to the computer to 1 hr/day in Vista and
how?

Yes. Look in Parental Controls. For more details, look up "Parental
Controls" in Vista's Help.

Yes, but only to a specific hour - not total elapsed.

You can use the net user command from a command prompt.


net user username
/times:{day[-day][,day[-day]],time[-time][,time[-time]] [;…] | all}

net user <username> /time:M-F,08:00-17:00
net user <username> /time:M-F,8am-5pm
net user <username> /time:M,4am-5pm;T,1pm-3pm;W-F,8:00-17:00

Thank you all. Yes I saw via parental controls you can limit a user it to a
spcific 1 hour of the day but not to just one hour (any time) per day.
Cheers!

Use a kitchen timer and when it rings, go to your child's computer and
turn it off. I realize this solution is pretty low tech but it's effective.

This is one of many limits with the Vista parental controls.

Check out http://www.pc-chaperone.com for a program that will do what
you want and a heck of a lot more. After spending several months
researching the options I found this to be the best parental control
out there. Very easy to use and more features then you'll ever need
