Well, I've got this really nifty VBScrip that runs on all domain users.  It enforces Single Logon rules set up by our enterprise, but canny users have discovered that using Control - Break will get them out of the script and bypass the process that prevents them from having multiple logons.

How do I prevent users from using ctrl-break to stop the script from running?  This is a native Windows 2000 Active Directory environment.  All workstations are 2k.

Thanks in advance.

There are many ways to do this. One that I am familiar with is to use AutoIt (available from http://www.hiddensoft.com ) and use the BlockInput function. I'm sure there is probably an API call you can make from within your VB script to accomplish the same result, but I don't personally know which functions to call.

Yeah, I'm really hoping someone can tell me what API to call as I really don't want to get into third party solutions.

Actually, if you check out the hiddensoft webpage, the C++ source code to AutoIt is available. You could just look at his implementation of the BlockInput function to find out which API calls you should be researching.
