Give me an example on why you want to do this so I can figure out a solution.   I don't think disabling the keyboard is the right solution.

I know that you cannot set a system modal so I was wondering if I could disable the keyboard.

Commented:
There isn't an application on the market that disables the keyboard, because there is never a good reason to do so.  This is not good development planning if you need to cut the user out of using his/her keyboard.   Thank about that please before sending out an application that does such.

a111a111a111,
Looking at the questions you have answered a111a111a111 I see most of them are answered the same way and some are even answered with an answer that isn't an answer, but others for the same question were and your answer was excepted.  Seems to me your answering your own questions with you logging in as someone else.

If not then I suggest not telling people things that have an effect on their OS like this would.

Please take my answer off the EE.

I would never disable the keyboard on a PC system.

To all the users here:
I am sorry (what Bill never...) about the answer here.
Do not use my method to disable the keyboard.

The only time one would disable the keyboard is maybe on a network when a PC is a client and you do not like any one to touch the keyboard.

In that case lock the keyboard or just place it in a safe drawer.
