Hello:

   Don't dream! Windows95 is not a secure operating system, and as long as you have an "Exit" option in you menus is impossible that you can stop an user to close an application, and at the end there is always the "reset" button somewhere very easy to reach and press...

   As a system manager with some experience, I believe the only way to make users do things is convincing them of the advantages of doing something. If there is a reason to keep an application running you have to explain why. If you are the boss you have the power jus to roder but I truly believe things don't work that way.
