Is it possible to not allow certain programs to run programmically. I have
the old problem at times people playing solitaire when they arent allowed
to. So, I was thinking is it possible to write some code? Such as: If time
is less than 8am, then allow sol.exe to run, else do not not allow sol.exe
to run.

TIA

Mike

There may be some third party software that can do this, I don't know for
sure. Of course, the foolproof way to keep people from goofing off at work
is to fire them for doing so. A less draconian approach would be to
uninstall the games from the computers.

uninstalling was the first thought. I had some other thoughts using events
for other applications in addition to controlling game play.

Thanks
