LogonExpert allows users to log on and off of their computers automatically at set times of day. The program is simple to use and features a high level of security versus other similar programs.
The programs interface is simple, consisting of four tabs: one to enter log-on information, one to set the schedule, one for security options, and one with information about the publisher (this is where we would expect to find the Help file, but there isnt one). Setting up the program is as simple as entering your Windows password and scheduling when you would like to log on and/or log off. Users can optionally lock their computers after log-on to keep it secure in case its unattended at the time. In general the program was easy to use; we scheduled it to log us off and log us back on a few minutes later, and it worked just fine. We would have liked to see either a Help file or a little more instruction from the interface; although its easy enough to figure out with a bit of effort, its not entirely intuitive. The programs publishers claim that it is more secure than similar programs because it doesnt store log-on information in the Registry; this may be important to users who are particularly concerned about security.
LogonExpert has a 10-day trial period, which should be ample time for users to evaluate it. It installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users.
