Windows 7: Enforce user logoff when time restrictions apply

Safe mode would not work for family safety. Safe mode only loads windows critical services. It's services would not start, so that is not a reliable test. Try this, you do not need to uninstall, but have your antivirus disable itself, and you can leave malwarebytes on. Try using the family safety now after uninstalling it and reinstalling it again once more. See if it works then.

If it still doesn't, temporary uninstall your antivirus (eset) and then try the family safety. If it works, something is messed up with the antivirus software that is preventing it from working. Which then you can report to the vendor to have it fixed.

I have seen that an antivirus even though its disabled, can still cause issues. Sometimes you need to uninstall it for the proper test.

No joy I'm afraid.

Coincidentally, the Family Safety time limits work on the kid's grandparent's computer and ESET and Malwarebytes are installed on there too.

I guess I'm just one of the many unlucky customers waiting for a fix from MS.

BTW, I don't suppose anyone knows what registry key or files are modified as a result of running the net user /time command please?

I did not glean much via Process Monitor. The second line is where the command was issued:

Enforce user logoff when time restrictions apply-net-user-times.png


And the video below just shows a bit more of the Process Monitor screen - as well as showing what you stated in your original post about the user not getting logged off when net user username /times: is used.

You might want to watch this in the the full screen mode and at 720p.


Have you played with scheduled tasks yet? Is restarting the computer a problem?

Very interesting. Thanks for taking the time to upload the video.

I haven't set the scheduled task as yet but I have made progress in other areas.

The reason I asked if anyone knew what registry key was being created/edited with the net user /time command is that I noticed that the restriction wasn't being enforced after a reboot. Running the command, switching user or logging off and the results were good but for some reason, it wasn't sticking after the computer restarted. I found a thread on Tom's Hardware forum where another user reported the same issue.

Can you confirm whether the same happens on your test account please UsernameIssues?

I then decided to put a little more time into the Family Safety time limits problem and it's now working on both computers in the house. Before shouting 'eureka', I want to test things over the weekend to ensure that it's not a coincidence. Managed to get things going on the desktop fairly easily enough but the laptop took considerably more tinkering before it started to work. Although there were a couple of corrupted tasks and a problem which was preventing the group policy editor from loading which may have been related to the issue too.

I have to consider the possibility that it had absolutely nothing to do with whatever I changed and perhaps MS have resolved something their end?

The time restrictions held thru a reboot. How odd that they did not hold for you.
