Recently my brother has been using the internet for MSN till 2a.m., I never knew about this till my parents approached me regarding the issue today. They want to purchase a program that would physically shut down the computer at 12a.m. every night, so I will do the next best thing disable the internet (if such a program exists). I don't believe such software exists and know that there is software out there that can disable the internet, called granny or something of the sort. Basically what I want to know is, does anyone have any personal experience with any of these programs or would like to share a free program or paid, doesn't matter to them, they just want the job done.
Also, while I doubt this, I'm frequently on my computer in the basement till 2a.m. doing homework and because I need the internet for research for university projects I will obviously need the internet, while the top floor will have none (though I'm sure if the application was on that computer, the internet disabling should be isolated to that comptuer). I don't have acces to the family computer ever since I have bought my own, so I'm unsure if XP comes with a feature like this. I use vista so I cannot explore this possibility.
Can anyone enlighten me on some applications that can do this? Free or paid doesn't make a difference here.
