Or:

Option Explicit

Const MF_REMOVE = &H1000&
Const MF_BYPOSITION = &H400&

Private Declare Function GetSystemMenu Lib "user32" _
    (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal bRevert As Long) As Long
Private Declare Function GetMenuItemCount Lib "user32" _
    (ByVal hMenu As Long) As Long
Private Declare Function RemoveMenu Lib "user32" _
    (ByVal hMenu As Long, ByVal nPosition As Long, ByVal wFlags As Long) As Long

Private Sub Form_Load()
    Dim hMenu As Long
    Dim menuItemCount As Long
    'Obtain the handle to the form's system menu
    hMenu = GetSystemMenu(Me.hwnd, 0)
    If hMenu <> 0 Then
        'Obtain the number of items in the menu
        menuItemCount = GetMenuItemCount(hMenu)
        'Remove the system menu Close menu item.
        'The menu item is 0-based, so the last
        'item on the menu is menuItemCount - 1
        Call RemoveMenu(hMenu, menuItemCount - 1, _
            MF_REMOVE Or MF_BYPOSITION)
        'Remove the system menu separator line
        Call RemoveMenu(hMenu, menuItemCount - 2, _
            MF_REMOVE Or MF_BYPOSITION)
    End If
End Sub

Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Unload Me
End Sub

This is to prevent the user from using the control menu or the close button.

Private Sub Form_QueryUnload(Cancel As Integer, UnloadMode As Integer)
    If UnloadMode = vbFormControlMenu Then Cancel = 1
End Sub
