    On my network, users may only login between 7 and 9 hour (19:00 / 21:00)
    This is going great, 'outside' these times, users cannot login.

    But, if the user is already logged in, it won't logoff the user...
    How can i fix this problem? (the user must be automaticly logged off at
    21:00 hour)

    If it is possible, it would be nice that the user gets a msg 5 minutes prior
    (20:55 hour)

    Thanks in advance,

  2. Hi,

    One option would be to create a scheduled job that would run something like

    shutdown -s -m \\computer -t 300

    shutdown command line tool comes with Windows XP or newer operating system.
    For all options related to shutdown tool use

    shutdown /?
