Computer Rental Controller is a computer program that allows you to easily rent or sell computer time on your computer. It offers two methods for renting time.
In the first method, it will generate a list of passwords. Each of these passwords allows access to the computer for a period of time selected by you. The time can be used all at once, or the person can terminate the session early and bank their time on that password for later. Once it has created a list of these passwords, whenever the computer is turned on, Computer Rental Controller displays a password screen that blocks access to the computer until you input a password. Each password then allows access to the computer for a period of time you selected when you had Computer Rental Controller create the passwords. When that time expires, access to the computer is again blocked. Each password is deleted from the list of passwords when it is used, so it can be used only once. This allows you to sell the passwords, thus selling use of the computer for specific periods of time. There are also administrator and supervisor passwords that allow unlimited access to the computer, as well as access to the Computer Rental Controller control panel.
Using the second method, Computer Rental Controller allows you to create and store a list of permanent passwords. Each password can be used an unlimited number of times. When a person gains access to the computer using one of these passwords, Computer Rental Controller keeps track of how long the person is on the computer. It can then give a report of how long each person used the computer. This report lists each time they signed onto the computer and how long they were on for that session. You can then bill each person for their use of the computer at your convenience.
Computer Rental Controller is useful in situations where you want to set up a computer that people can use for specific periods of time, such as an Internet Cafe or computer kiosk. It can also be used in cases where a parent might want to control how long a child uses the computer.
Computer Rental Controller keeps two separate running records of when the computer was accessed. One shows the use of the permanent passwords so you can bill each person. The other record shows all accesses to the computer using the rental passwords that are used only once. This can be useful for business records.

NOTE: This program is primarily useful if you keep the computer on your premises. If you actually rent out the computer to another location, or you lease computers or sell then on an installment plan, you might find Computer Payment Enforcer more useful. This is a software program that shuts down the computer if you do not input a new password periodically. You can then give the user this password when they make their payments.
