Hi everyone,

I have a cafe where IE, Yahoo, MSN, Office applications, and others are opened simultaneously. I will like to have a software that can restrict the number of opened windows to a specified amount. Like say restriction is 6, this means that no matter what application is opened, the customer can not open more than 6 windows at a time.

If there's any software that can do this, please let me know as soon as possible.

Thanks for all your unceasing supports.

Having watched your previous posts on similar matters I am seriously wondering if adding so many restrictions is actually going to damage your business. What purpose would a limit like this serve. You should write out a terms of service for users at your cafe and if they do not abide by them they can be banned without warning if necessary. Just state that if they are banned they will not get a refund and such forth. That way if you see them doing "bad things" you have the position as you notified them about it to remove them. You could make it so the systems open a notepad doc or similar on booting stating all the cafe rules if needed.

As far as I understood it spamming took a lot more dedication to set up a by any means usable system before it would bring in a return.

Also stopping the spammers and scammers relies only upon making it economically inviable for them to continue. Stopping where they may start scamming or spamming just moves them on. We need to make people aware to stop it. In doing so we can remove the problem.
