    "DO NOT BUY IF YOU LIKE HAVING A HAPPY KID"

    July 16, 2014  |   By cryptologicalMystic

    Version: Time Boss 3.08

    Pros

    Absolutely none.

    Cons

    It doesn't just lock you out when you run out of time, no, it LOGS YOU COMPLETELY OUT! I lost CSS code that I'd been working on for TWO HOURS because of this program! Trust me, this is not the way to keep people off the computer, it will only get people mad at you!

    Summary

    If you're like me and have been stuck with this stupidity, I suggest putting a keylogger on yourself and then doing something that will require your parent to type the password in; either that or getting them to use the 'limits time on browsers' option instead of the 'limits time on computer as a whole' option. The latter is the method you should probably use.

    "Bought after trial session"

    March 18, 2014  |   By ystella

    Version: Time Boss 3.08

    Pros

    The event log and screenshot feature is good.
    This will be fantastic if it works.
    Advertised as hack proof - but not so!

    Cons

    My son managed to hack it after I bought the licensed product.
    Response from support was slow and unhelpful in solving the problem after I sent them the log file.
    They commented that the product was not properly registered which was not true. Time Boss shut down its service after repeatedly signing on and off windows (wins 8). To restart TB, I have to key in the registration number, set the parameters again. This is very frustrating.

    Summary

    No use. Don't buy if you have challenging kids like mine.

    "Pro version is very useful"

    November 14, 2013  |   By TiThomas

    Version: Time Boss 3.08

    Pros

    My son has admin rights on PC and
    TB Pro limits it by time without problem...
    I can see events log on son's PC directly
    from my laptop...

    Cons

    No internet filter for FF.

    Summary

    I recommend to try

    "Best parental time/web control software available"

    May 13, 2011  |   By dchapiro

    Version: Time Boss 2.50

    Pros

    Allows fine grain control to all the resources of the computer, including DVD drive, which software can be used and when, web access, etc. It's easy to set up and configure, and can't be bypassed by crafty kids.

    Cons

    None. Even their customer support is excellent.

    Summary

    I wish I had found it when my kids were younger. It's much better and robust than any of the other products in the market (and I've tried many!), but for some reason it's not well known.

    Disclaimer: I have no relationship with Nicekit or Time Boss, and I found them only because I kept trying other packages after my son kept managing to defeat them... BTW, It seems most other packages focus on controlling the websites a kid visits, rather than providing a comprehensive solution.

    "It really is a great product!"

    October 7, 2009  |   By stasdan008

    Version: Time Boss 2.43

    Pros

    From starting the program, I created five profiles, adapted them to each user, and closed the program. In practice, the logs and screenshots tools are intuitive, making it convenient to review each user's events.

    Cons

    Does work with Windows 7?

    "Did not provide admin rights. Unable to uninstall."

    July 24, 2009  |   By amserrano

    Version: Time Boss 2.43

    Pros

    No opportunity provided to assess it's effectiveness.

    Cons

    Installed trial version on son's PC. Upon install, it took over and provided only 45 minutes. Not clear what program was set to do. Admin rights were denied. No control given. Save a headache, try KidsWatch instead. It has tech phone support.

    "Worked fairly well, but poor customer care response"

    August 23, 2007  |   By wchandler1962

    Version: Time Boss 2.2

    Pros

    The program set times and limits. I love the fact that it logged in by dates. Screenshots were great to tell what was going on. Still would be using it, but daughter figured out how to get around it.

    Cons

    When I tried to get assistance (I payed for the program) I could get no response to describe how daughter was resetting the program and fix it so I could continue to use it

    "I have purchase Time Boss and thinks it's a great program."

    December 7, 2006  |   By mikle_nk

    Version: Time Boss 2.2

    Pros

    TB keeps an event log and a screenshot log for my kids, thus monitoring all events is very simple. I can add some programs and even folders to the black list, so that they cannot be launched or opened!

    My version (2.271) of TB is compatibly with Norton Internet Security.

    Cons

    Don't support remotely control from any

    PC on my home network
