How do you disable Ctrl+Alt+Delet and Alt+F4? I am creating a login program and want to make sure that the user is unable to close down the program without logging in. (I have already disabled the X button.)

Kory,

To disable CTRL+ALT+DEL and CTRL+ESC, use the following code :
________________________________________________________________

DECLARATION / FUNCTION (place in module):

Public Declare Function SystemParametersInfo Lib "user32" Alias "SystemParametersInfoA" (ByVal uAction As Long, ByVal uParam As Long, ByVal lpvParam As Any, ByVal fuWinIni As Long) As Long

Public Sub DisableCtrlAltDelete(bDisabled As Boolean)
  Dim X As Long
  X = SystemParametersInfo(97, bDisabled, CStr(1), 0)
End Sub


USE (place in your code where you want to use it):

'To disable Ctrl-Alt-Delete:
Call DisableCtrlAltDelete(True)

'To enable Ctrl-Alt-Delete:
Call DisableCtrlAltDelete(False)
________________________________________________________________

To disable ALT+F4, on the form that you think they will do an ALT+F4, put a private Boolean variable in the General/Declarations section, then test that Boolean variable in the Form_Unload event.  If your program hasn't set it to TRUE, then set "Cancel = True".  This will stop the unloading of your form/program.  If you want to close your program, set that Boolean variable to TRUE, then unload all forms, and/or use the End statement.
