Is there any program out that (preferably free) that can monitor wich users log on and for how long. I am the admin of the computer but I don't need to monitor what sites they go to and key strokes just when they log in and when they log off and preferable a thing that can generate a report to tell me how long each one is on.

BTW I am doing this because my brother get's so much more computer time then me so I want to prove to my mom when he goes on and how long so that she can change the hours so it is equal.

If it's just internet usage get mom to spring $50-$100 on a used computer and you both can be online. That is what I did with my kids. Have 11 computers just for the kids and thier friends. Everything LANed.

Acklan I don't really want to block the computer or anything like that just logged when the users log in and how long they spend on the computer.

No. P-II 400 to P-III 500. You won't get much for that. You are looking to spend $1200 to $2000 to do high end gaming on an entry level.
You may get an entry level computer to play those games to some degree, starting at about $600 from Dell or Gateway.
