    sometime i spent a lot of time on my computer, and i think that something that can do this job, will be great :)
    it's like a forced diet.
    thank you!

    Pull the network cable? Disable network card? Have willpower?

    Although not exactly what you are requesting, assuming that you are using high-speed, cut your service and signup for a dial-up account. I'm not sure about you but that would keep me off the internet. If that still doesn't do it, have somebody pickup the phone every now and again. :biggrin:

    Do you want to disconnect from Internet or shutdown your computer ? What will prevent you from working on your computer even when internet gets disconnected ? What type of Internet connection do you have ? If it is connected to a router then use a scheduler/task or macro to open the router settings and disconnect. It should be possible but whether it overtakes your will power or not is a question we would like to get an answer from you. you said "difficulty to control" - You are the only one going to create this control and so you will be the one to break it.

    There is a ms tool called devcon to control the network adapter of windows....which will help u in disconnecting you from network at a particular scheduled time using Scheduler and reconnect the system to internet later...

    Network Disable command : Ex: devcon disable *DEV_8139*
    Network Enable command : Ex: devcon enable *DEV_8139*
    :)
