How to disable start menu in windows ce

Hi all,

Our objective is to restrict the user of the PDA from running any other application except ours; for that it seems that the start menu should be disabled; but we are unable to find a way to do that. Any help is welcome;any other solution which might restrict the user from accessing other application are also welcome.
We are using C# under visual studio 2003 for developing the application.

Thank a lot

Best Regards,
YE

[DllImport("aygshell.dll")]
static extern uint SHFullScreen(IntPtr hwndRequester, uint dwState);

[DllImport("coredll.dll")]
public static extern IntPtr GetCapture();

private void Form1_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
    Capture = true;
    IntPtr hwnd = GetCapture();
    Capture = false;
    SHFullScreen(hwnd, SHFS_HIDESTARTICON);
}

sorry guys we already considered this before, but it only HIDES the Start Menu NOT DISABLES it;
What we want to achieve is the disabling of the Startmenu in the windows CE, so that even when our application is not runnning the user cannnot run any other application

You can do that by building your own CE OS using the Platform Builder. But it looks like you want to do it with any PDA.

No not with any PDA; we are focusing on iPAQ2210.
