I need to disallow a domain user the ability to use ctl-alt-delete.  Basically what I am trying to accomplish, is that if this certain user logs in, pressing <ctrl-alt-del> will not bring up a menu, or at the least, will allow them to do nothing but shut the system down.  
Also, if there is a policy, or a way to do this without interaction on the 2000 workstation itself.  The PDC can either be NT4, or 2000 Server.  



Thank you in advance.

5263 » How do I use Group Policy to disable Task Manager for a user?

In tip 0070, I described setting DisableTaskMgr, a REG_DWORD data type, to 1, to disable Task Manager for a user.

To disable Task Manger using Group Policy, Enable the Disable Task Manager Group Policy object at
User Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Logon/Logoff.

If the policy is enabled, when a user starts Task Manager, they receive a message explaining that this action has been disabled by policy.

SysExpert,
  Does the reg setting work under 2000 Pro as well?  Since it is set under HKCU, do you need to be logged in as that user prior to setting the value?
