I need to know specific what you want:
- Should the startbar and desktop be disabled temporarily or permament?
   Temp: Create a system modal dialog. This allows nobody to do anything until your dialog is closed. People do not like these dialogs.
   Perm: You want to provide another shell. In this case remove shell="Explorer.exe" in the system.ini (or win.ini) and replace it with shell="YourApp.exe". This removes the taskbar & desktop completly.

This was meant as an answer, since I think you need option 2.
