Does anyone know where to get a program to block internet/computer usage during certain parts of the day? or at least block certain websites during preset hours? I've looked around, but have yet to find one...

If you have a router it shouldn't be a problem to block internet access. If it's a linksys, log into your router and go to the access restrictions tab. You can configure your internet access policy there.

Depending on what OS you're running, you might be able to configure user access limitations as well.

Yeah, I was going to suggest using the router. I did some scouring on Google and couldn't find anything exactly like what you described. Also checked my OpenDNS dashboard and it does allow blocking sites at the DNS level, but not for certain periods.

Vista offers it according to their commercials, it should be in the parental settings. Info here: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-vista/features/parental-controls.aspx
