I see that Norton Online Family is not locking my kids accounts when the time limit is reached.
It DOES block unwanted websites.
It DOES mail a warning that the limit has been reached and pops up a warning message on the screen.
But the actual lock does NOT happen.
Reinstalling the Safety Minder didn't help.
Windows 7 x64 bit, latest Safety Minder available.

When the time is up or during a curfew period, the child would get an extra 60 seconds plus another 60 seconds while displaying a warning message with 60 seconds counting down. After that, the child is logged out of his/her account. The child is allowed to log back to the PC for 60 seconds and receive another warning message with 60 seconds counting down to finish whatever he/she was doing . Later, the behavior is repeated for the 3rd time, so the child gets about extra 6 minutes, then he/she wouldn't be able to log back to the PC without the email address and password of the Norton Online Family account.
