Hi,

is there a possibility to disable the "X" button on the right top of the NT command prompt window so that the process cannot be stopped when someone clicks on it?

Thanks,
Jiri

Jiri,

Off hand I would have to say no, but if you are running a process you can have the window automatically minimize to the toolbar.

I go with the "out of site, out of mind principle" You could use this as a temporary solution.

hope this is of some help

It is possible.  Kixtart disables this by default.
