Version: 1.4As you know, controlling your kids computer use is very important. Aside from the obvious dangers of porn and chat rooms, too much computer use can also cut into their sleep and homework time. However it is difficult to set up a computer to prevent your kids from using it when you don't want them to.

One of the popular solutions is to install software that will stop your kids from visiting specific web sites or chat rooms. But your kids can stay all night at a computer simply playing computer games. In the past, there were programs intended to stop computer games from running on your computer. Such programs used a database of known computer games. Nowadays, new computer games come daily and can be downloaded from the Internet. It's hard, if not impossible, to keep databases of known games up-to-date. In addition, your kids can figure out how to rename executables to fool the protection.
EasySmallSoft proposes a fresh approach to the old problem with their new product called GamesNoMore. This software does not need a database to prevent games from running on your computer. All modern computer games (at least those that may be of interest to your kids) use unified programming libraries for graphical and audio output. They use either Microsoft DirectX libraries or their open source analog, OpenGL. GamesNoMore allows you to enable/disable these libraries at will. Computer games simply won't run without these libraries.
GamesNoMore is extremely easy to use, yet includes some advanced features. You can set it up to launch in hidden mode on Windows startup. (Of course, you can easily get it into view with a secret key combination of your choice.)
