Quark,

Check crowd control out.  This will do what you want I think.  Give you good security in 95.

Reading your question though, is it 95 or 98?

Why are Office 365 signatures so complicated?

Trying to setup transport rules for Office 365 email signatures and can’t quite figure it out? Having to test the signature over and over? Make things simple by using Exclaimer Cloud - Signatures for Office 365.

I think you better solve this problem in another way! I recomment using the system policy editor available in the resource kit from windows. After installing this simple program you have a lot of things you can secure your desktop and also logging in. For instance you can use a policy that windows doens't allow a user to not logging in.

Any specific related questions are welcome

Quark,

What about the "Cancel" button ? It should also be disabled, in addition to the "ESC" key.

But, anyone would still be able to give in a NEW username and password, and create a new account.

You can use Policy Editor to control the access to certain features, But if that person has a copy of POLEDIT.EXE, then he can change all access controls.

In short, Win9x does not give you much security.
You may use an external programs to "Enforce" only certain usernames, and if the username used is not in a given list, then restart the computer, and i doubt you can do much else beyond that.

ahalya, you are correct. How about the 'Cancel' button?

Anyways I have found a nice 3rd party shareware to solve the ESC key problem.

The shareware name is
 Super Rabbit Magic Set v2.98

Well you can try on in too.
