How can i disable the keyboard and mouse when a process is running in the background in windows 95/98/nt environment?

I must be able to restore the input devices after the process is over. so, if i can call an  'exe' file which will deactivate keyb/mouse and another 'exe' file which will restore it.  The process running should have the highest severity level rather than the 'exe' file called.
