Internet DeAddiction Program II


Do you repeatedly check the web "only for a moment" when you should be doing real work?

Do you lose hours of productivity to surfing the web?

Help yourself focus on what you need to do, when you need to do it, by using our new Internet De-Addiction tool: The Internet DeAddiction Program II.

Experts define Internet addiction disorder (IAD, also known as "Internet overuse"), as excessive Internet use that interferes with daily life.

Certain websites, especially social networking sites like Facebook and twitter, are known as effective time-wasters because they relax the brain's frontal lobes, which are responsible for self-control, planning, reasoning, and abstract thought, and leave you at the mercy of your impulses.

Some of our customers, who happen to be college students, report how even when using the Internet to do their homework, they keep drifting back to social sites and wasting their precious assignments time. After contacting us, explaining the nature of this "Internet addiction" problem and requesting some kind of software solution that could temporarily block the Web for them while allowing access to their college or university website (to do their homework), we came up with this edition Internet De-Addiction tool.

Our concept is simple: You know what's good for you. You know how to best spend your time. But  your computer's default configuration makes the distance between you and the time-wasting Internet temptations ridiculously easy to overcome. All you need now is somewhat greater distance.

This is where we step in and offer you an "Internet timer". Our Internet timer, also known as the Internet DeAddiction Program II, lets you set the time of day in which you need absolute disconnect from the Internet. You enter when the Internet is to be blocked and for how long, you then click the OK button and from now on, you are in control again:

Now... it is true that you can always circumvent this Internet de-addiction little helper by deliberately entering a different start time and/or block time duration. But that's point: Surrendering to temptation is typically not deliberate. With Internet DeAddiction Program II, you will have a few more seconds, a few more keystrokes and a few more mouse clicks to weigh in whether this is really what you want to do.

To learn more how our Internet de-addiction tool works, click the the tab labeled "How It Works".

The Internet DeAddiction Program II is perfect for both homes and offices and will not block your network connections to your shared file server or other productivity tools on your local network (LAN).

Note: This product is currently compatible with Windows XP only . If enough customers request Windows 7 and Vista support, we will deliver that, too.

The beauty of this wizard is that you don't have to follow any complex instructions. Once you download this app (save it first to  your desktop or in an easy-to-find folder), you double-click it, click the Next button on the installation wizard and Voila! You will now see a green (or red) icon in your system tray, indicating the state of your Internet connection.

When you start Windows and you logon to your account, InternetDeAddictionProgramII will start automatically, with the Internet always Unblocked:

Depending on the time settings you enter via the Block Time & Duration dialog box, this may change within up to one minute to Blocked:

To invoke the Block Time & Duration dialog box, in order to specify when the Internet is to be blocked and for how long, right-click the green InternetDeAddictionProgramII icon in the system tray and select 'Time":

A dialog box window will appear, prompting you to enter the start time (in 24-hour convention, i.e. 9:00PM is 21:00), duration of the Internet block and the URL of a single website to be excluded:

In the example above, the Internet will be blocked from 8:15PM till 11:45PM, while still allowing access to Click OK to save your settings and, depending on the time of day and the settings you entered, InternetDeAddictionProgramII's Systray will turn red, within up to 1 minute, indicating Blocked Internet connection:

To unblock Internet connection, simply wait for the timer's expiration.

Note: You may be tempted to unblock the Internet by selecting "Exit" from InternetDeAddictionProgramII's context menu, but if you do that, you will simply receive the following dialog box:

This is by design and it is not a bug. You will be tempted to workaround this block but, if you are truly determined to restore your productivity, this little reminder will help you recall your resolution and commitment to staying on track.

Stay tuned for upcoming upgrades which may make InternetDeAddictionProgramII even more polished. By purchasing InternetDeAddictionProgramII you will be entitled to 12 downloads over a period of 1 year (whichever expires earlier). 

Note: no desktop icons will be installed, as to avoid cluttering your desktop. Instead, you will find a Software Candy entry in your Start Menu, which allows you to uninstall it, should you ever want to do this.

According to the Computer Addiction Study Center at Harvard University's McLean Hospital, between 5% and 10% of Web surfers suffer a "Web dependency". Web dependency is yet another term coined to avoid the distracting and divisive term addiction.

As in other forms of addiction, many web surfers are aware of their own Internet addiction and even acknowledge it. Their ways of dealing with the situation vary from the totally giving in (i.e. doing nothing to limit their time on the Internet) to physically disconnecting the Internet. We have recently learned about a professional working from his home office, who unplugs the wireless Internet cable and puts it in his wife's bag, who doesn't work at a home office like him -- not before checking, for the last time that morning, his email, Facebook and Twitter accounts, plus comments posted in his blog.

In China, for example, it is estimated that 10% of web surfers suffer Internet addiction. The New York Times reported in 2007 that in 30% of Internet users under the age of 18 in South Korea, are prone to becoming addicted to the Internet. In South Korea alone, about 140 de-addiction camps have been established, in addition to approximately 100 hospitals with dedicated de-addiction programs. In China there are about 400 de-addiction camps, with costs exceeding $1,000 per patient. In the USA, a new de-addiction center for teenagers charges a minimum of $14,500 for a 45-day program.

Software Candy's Internet DeAddiction Program II is by no means intended to be a substitute for psychological help offered by professionals. If you reached a point in which you need to seek medical or psychological help in order to reclaim your productive life back, then this tool is not for you.

Software Candy's Internet DeAddiction Program II is for Internet users who are still capable of controlling urges, if given the right reminder.

Our Internet DeAddiction Program II could also be helpful in determining for yourself whether you are truly addicted -- and to what extent. It could also serve as an inexpensive check before deciding to spend thousands of dollars for a professional treatment program. You may be amazed to find out how strong-willed you are.

Note: You must be able to logon to your computer as Administrator in order to Install and use this program in its current version. We are working on ways that will enable non-Administrator use and benefits of this program.

  • Q1. What is the difference between this tool and Internet DeAddiction Program I? Which one should I choose?

  • Q2. I downloaded and installed this software and it works beautifully. Thank you! However, I can't find its icon on the desktop. Did I do anything wrong?
  • A2. No, you did everything correctly. By design, we do not clutter your desktop with unnecessary icons. Instead, we insert the proper menu items in your Start Menu.
