Disable keyborad input to desktop

I am trying to freeze the whole windows for security implementation, like developing a system wide modal dialog.
The problem I am facing is I cannot disable the keyboard input to the taskbar (Ctrl-Esc) and (Ctrl-Alt-Del).
Please help.

suppose you could try, PreTranslateMessage(MSG *pMsg)
and if VK_CTRL or something in that effect.  (otherwise get a more sophisticated method.)
Mine is primitive but it seems to work.

You can create a global hook by use of the SetWindowsHookEx function to monitor for the key strokes you don't want to be used.

SetWindowsHookEx(WH_KEYBOARD, GetKeyboardMSG, hinstance, threadID/*this would be null for a global hook*/)
