I'm sure that quite a few peolpe out there with teenager kids will appreciate that MSN Messenger is getting far to addictive. My kids are constantly on it despite our efforts to stop them and type in a language far to difficult to understand at times.

Does anybody know a way to block it for certain times of the day or password it etc.. so that we can stop them!!

Thanks in advance

messenger accounts are set up using the e mail address of the user and comes with a password set by the user, the only way to block it would be either getting net nanny or suchlike from download.com or password protect the computer altogether.

Computers password protected at present, but You can't stop them all the time.

i read or heard that you could block certain sites for certain times etc..

this may be of help but you didn't say which os you are using click here;EN-US;q302089
If you have xp then you could make accounts for the kids and set it up there that no access to msn messenger unless you are present to log it on for them on your own account

Cheers Johnny will give it a try. If you a hear a large scream in your part of the country, It's my daughters attacking me after finding out that they've been blocked. I'd better notify Surrey Ambulance Service in advance!!!!!

Thanks again
