Looking for a way to time out an account login on XP.

I'm having some MySpace related issues with my teen, and she's on limited PC access. I set up a password for her limited account yesterday, but I could set a time limit that would log her out it be helpful.

I dont believe there is a built in software tool to do what you want in windows XP. There are however many third party software solutions. I read about this one in PC Magazine seemed pretty good and has a free trial: http://www.softwaretime.com/

Good luck!
