How do I write a java program that controls all the services of the computer
I have an internet center where customers come and use internet for a limited amount of time and pay according to the number of hours or minutes they used Internet. Checking the starting and ending time of a customer is manual and is not convenient. I would like to create a java program that:
- prevents users from all other services on the windows computers (it's the only program running on the computer when no customer is logged in)
- from which the customer can send a request to the central server where its starting time is registered
- stops the customer when the amount of time he requested is over.
I am beginning to program in java and I want to know where to get started. Any suggestions about an existing software that does the same job is very welcome.

I'm really not sure that Java is the tool for the job you described. Java is platform independent and works in a sandbox, which prevents you from doing some of the things you described. You probably can find a way to finagle it with native code, but it's not going to be trivial.
