I have this thing that locks the mouse and when they try to hit ctr alt del and shut the program off it just reloads it self so fast that nothing happens! You can just make a form that is blue and it freezes! Well here is the code (pls. execpt my answer I need these points) Thanx!


Function Lock_Mouse()
' to lock it just type: Lock_Mouse
   Dim typRect As tagRect
   Static fClip As Boolean
           
     
     
Call ClipCursor(typRect)
      fClip = Not fClip
end function

Private Sub Form_QueryUnload(Cancel As Integer, UnloadMode As Integer)
Dim dirss
dirss = App.Path + "/"

Shell dirss + "YourAppName.exe"

End Sub

And why in the world would you even want to do this?

Easy,
    just copy 3 or 4 of the API declarations from the API viewer and try to call the functions correctly!!! MoveMemory works real good... just poke arbitrary values into it...

The answer doesnt lock windows just the mouse!!!

Here's a clue, look at the following APIs

Createtool32help (or something like it)
Process32First
Process32Next
(CloseHandle)
OpenProcess
GetExitCodeProcess
TerminateProcess
(CloseHandle)

Have Fun! :)) Use your initiative!

One sure fire way of CRASHING windows is to slap the Winsock control onto your form and make ordinary calls to it over and over again (connect/disconnect) and within 4 hours time your entire system will go down because of lost memory. Your HD will also begin thrashing because of the lost physical RAM (resorting to full virtual).

Sounds like you are making a malignant virus...

4 Hours... I think s/he wants an instant crash!!!

(Look into those APIs, I will help you further if you need it)

I'd hide the cursor too!

add the declaration from the Win32API Reference!

' Code
r=ShowCursor(0)
