MAGCAYAN is only an image inserted in the picture box control.. you can simply modify that by inserting your own Design image or logo. Feel free to modify my uploaded program to suit your own needs or interest... you can simply delete MAGCAYAN image and insert your own design....

For Admin

username : ADMIN

password : magcayan


For Limited Time

username : Cafe Timer

password : magcayan


You can change the password in Admin Settings...

now i can open the VB file, but when i run it, i can't open it because there's a password, and the password you gave didn't work. when i click run, TRAXEX is showing up, and she's always saying VIEW OPTION. when i click the button view option, she needs a password.

Do you have a tutorial how to make this internet cafe timer? not how to work. tnx.

Hi sir,

I set the time into 15mins and played counter strike, or san andreas, even need for speed. After 15mins it still allowing me to play. when I exit the game, the screen is already block. Is there's a way to fixed this issue? how to throw the window back to the system after time limit?

i am using windows xp and try to play counter strike and set the time limit to 15 minutes... after the time laps (15mins), the game counter strike minimized and the program blocked the screen.. the background image is the set focus... there is no error occured... maybe its depend in the OS used... please try to run my program in windows xp and let me know if still you got the same error.... i never try this run in windows 7 or vista... so i dont know if its because of the OS used

Hi sir,

I've tried your program in windows xp, now here is the case. if the time set is 30 mins, it blocks the screen. I tried increasing the time to 1hr, the blocker failed to get the focus. It still allow me to use the computer after the time set, until I close the game.

Thanks in advance.

Open the bin folder, then open debug folder and then double click the Cafe Timer.exe...
you can still run the program even though you have not visual studio installed in your pc..

sir, I run the cafe timer.exe in the debug folder but it won't run I'm getting application failed to initialized properly. Please help me how to run the program, I need it for my small home cafe shop.

Thank you in advance. my e mail [email protected]

good A.M, i dont know why you can't run the exe file coz,, i have try it in my pc for several times and it works for me with no error .... i am using windows xp... maybe its because of your OS, try to run the program in another computer if you have with win xp Operating System..

Hello JB Thanks I have succesfully run the program but it won't start at start up anyway I made a shortcut in the start up folder and it runs now,

but it won't save the admin settings like disable task manager, hide the shutdown menu and run at start up. Also You can restart even the timer is running, please disable user restarting or shutting down the PC. and please can you add a last 3 minutes warning message if the user time is running out to give them a chance to save work or logged out their accounts.

Thank you so much for your very good program. e mail [email protected]

Thank you very much JB or Norle for accomodating my request,

I would like also to suggest that, (if it is possible only), that the user will buy from the owner a passwords, ( set up like this in unit of computer ) you will assign or generate passwords for 1 hour use and it will be recorded in database or EXcel form and if unlimited rent ,another set of generated passwords recorded also when it was used and spend, and such password can not be use again. This task only administrators can make.

This is good for accounting purposes and the operator won't log anymore before the user rent.
And another suggestion, (hope I'm not abusive) can you let the alt-tab still function while the task manager is disabled because our user are usually the gamers type while playing DOTA they will ALT-tab to activate DOTA shortcut keys or reply to their facebook. This are our usual internet users.

Thank you very much and God Bless.

Good day!
I installed your cafe timer in my PC and it works really fine and I love it! :) However, just like "Anonymous" I also wanna remove the "Magcayan Internet Shop" Logo in the timer. I've deleted the image in the standalone folder, but still the logo is still showing up in the timer. I will appreciate your immediate response regarding this concern.
Thanks a bunch! you're such a great help! :)

You cannot remove the MAGCAYAN logo in the timer by deleting it from the image folder because the logo was made in the design environment... you can simply modify this by clicking the image control containing the magcayan image in the design environment and replace by your own desire logo or image and then compile it again...

hello mr. fellow programer if i'm already
i made a program in vb 10 with the same concept as you have.i have 7 pc's and all of'em are operated by an xp os (same as what you have).i have made my screen lock .but the problem is when i set the timer to bout 5 sec.then i played dota (very famous) ,when the timer reach 0 it should have automatically shown the screen lock but it aint untill i minimize the game.

i'm 16 so its my very pleasure to learn a solution from you or any body who can help here.for short please help me fix that bug

and one more thing.the 5 min or three warning sign thingy please include it to your reply regarding this.
thanks so much my masters.

Submitted bykrypton (not verified)on Mon, 12/12/2011 - 23:34

me again ...
so before i have decided to create my program i have downloaded yours first
(because of curiosity and gladness to find a software like this)
my screen resolution is 1366,768
so when i ran your program and the time limit reached i can still close the form because the border was still present.though i now that you have it as none.i think it's because of the maximize window thingy on the properties please make it a bit wider?? or any resolutions of monitor can use this.thanks a lot.please be patient with me asking lot's of things :P .i helps in your debugging also :D

Submitted bykrypton (not verified)on Tue, 12/13/2011 - 02:48

hello there,
i may have found the fix about the bug that when you play dota (for example) the screen lock will appear after you alt tab.I've fixed it.i'll soon be opening my prog. here fer you guys.after i upgrade it.:P

Submitted bykrypton (not verified)on Tue, 12/13/2011 - 23:25

hello there,
I've finished my disables ALT + TAB, ALT + Ctrl + Delete ,ALT + F4, so i think there would be no way of by passing it (except if the user knew your password).it also overrides the games such as dota , sf , cs, ran,plants vs. zombies (some kids play it here in my shop ,even my father himself,)angry birds,and other,without any alt + tab needs.
about the warning message i'm still working on it.. :D

2nd. the bin folder is empty!

i made it on 2010 express so i'm not really sure if it would work on 2008..i think it may not because it is an older version.but i could run 2008 version on my 2010 ..the bin folder is not empty i tried downloading it .and i was able to find the icon.and etc. i'm fixing some bugs right now thanks for the comments i'll try to keep it up to you as soon as i finish building up some improvements.Ü.
