I was wondering if it's possible to disable the Windows keys under Windows 98.  I know it's certainly possible under win95, so is there a way to do it under 98?

Mr. Yot,

   One surefire way of doing it is by pulling the entire key out of the keyboard.  Or, this is another way:

I'll try that winkey disabling program later.  Unfortunately, removing the keys is not an option, it isn't my keyboard, otherwise I would have done that some time ago.  Thanks anyways.
