shell & explorer.exe
Posted on 2000-03-26
I'm creating a program to limit the time my younger siblings spend each day on my computer.
I've created a login screen, and then I changed the SYSTEM.INI file so that "Shell" points to this
program. This works fine, but when the correct password is entered, I want the program to run explorer.exe as a
shell. Right now when I run explorer.exe, he just pops up like Windows Explorer, i.e no taskbar/startmenu & desktop visible.
Is it possible to run explorer.exe as a shell from within my program?
Another question, I know that you can disable various things, like the desktop, control panel and start menu to
name a few ... I've seen some tweak utility that did this. How is this done? It's somewhere in the registry, right?
