Hi, Is there any way of locking the pc clock with say a password?, the reason being that I have been using blue coat K9 web protection and setting a time ban of 9.30 pm to make sure my children are off the pc buy then but I am sure they are just altering the pc time to get around this! any ideas please? Thanks.

Which O/S have you got?Having googled your request it seems that you need to set things so only you have Administrator priveleges on the pc,therefore once done,the clock time etc.can only be altered by you.
Hope this at least starts things off until more knowledgable members reply.

Yes they are very ingenious. Same trick used to be used by PC users to stop time limited programs from expiring in olden Win 3.1 days. I wonder if that still works?

the same thing was still being used, with the aid of a registry fix, in Win98.
