Description: Chaperone is the ultimate access control utility for both the home and office. Packed with features it is based on the premise that there are users who shouldn't have complete access to the computer all the time. Using advanced scheduling techniques completely control of how and when the computer is used is easily obtained.
Most common methods of controlling what programs can be run are based on preventing the program from running at any time. Chaperone gives the added flexibility of enhancing this control by allowing an independent schedule for each program. These schedules can be set to either a maximum number of hours per day or according to a defined schedule where individual of 15-min time slots can be set to permit or deny access.
Defining a similar schedule for Windows itself can control access to the entire computer.
Additional features increase security by disabling Registry tools, preventing program installations, denying access to the control panel, and moreâ€¦.
Chaperone fully supports multiple users. Each user can have their own access rights, or can use the same rights as other users. These user accounts can even mirror the Windows login, preventing the user from having to enter another password!!!!
In the home Chaperone is the perfect for parents wanting to prevent minors from excessive or undesirable computer use. Programs that are considered a risk can even be completely blocked!!!!
In the office Chaperone is the ideal tool to control how computer assets are utilized. Increased productivity can be achieved by limiting employee misuse of activities such as online chatting or music swapping, with the added benefit of being able to provide some flexibility to increase moral. For example, limited access to MSN chat and similar services could allow a schedule that permits them to run only during lunch hour or after work hours. Set the policy and Chaperone enforces it!!!!
