If it's Vista (probably XP too) I think you can do all this from user accounts.
Just open <help and support> and type Parental controls. All there.

says there is a parental control option in Vista. I don't think there is one in XP.

I use K9 on my XP desktop and Vista laptop because I like it and it is unintrusive.

In XP, you can use the net user command at the command line to restrict when a user can log on. Of course, your daughter will need to have her own user name and password and you'll need to set accounts and passwords for everyone else that she doesn't know, so she can't simply log on as someone else.

For example, if her username were mary, to allow her to only log on between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. on Monday through Friday, you would type the following at the command prompt:

C:\>net user mary /time:M-F,08:00-20:00

To get to the command prompt window, in the Start; Run box, type: cmd.exe

This keeps her from logging on after 8 p.m., but if she's already logged on, it doesn't force her to log off.
