I am looking for a software (probably some parental control type software?) that will run on a computer and is able to close running applications after certain hour and also restrict access during certain time.

For example: Thunderbird: allow to run it only monday to friday from 6am to 3pm. If the application is opened after 3pm, automatically close it.

Any ideas? Thank you.


Willing to spend some money for it?

HomeGuard Activity Monitor seems to do what you want and a whole lot more, for $50, http://veridium.net/homeguard-activity-monitor/program-blocker/

For somewhat cheaper, $35, Time Boss seems great http://nicekit.com/parental-control-software.htm

One free one I did find is Romaco Timeout https://romacocanada.ca/timeout/, you can check it out, but to me it didn't seem as robust, and also it is officially discontinued.
