Subject says it all, I need to disable these shortcut keys from working.  Preferrably through the registry, but I'm open to any suggestions.

Try this for alt F4

 Settings:
User Key: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\
Explorer]
System Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\
Explorer]
Name: NoWinKeys
Type: REG_DWORD (DWORD Value)
Value: (0 = disable restriction, 1 = enable restriction)

I did for Alt+F4 .... no luck

Also, if this is not possible, if someone could post where there might be a Microsoft article stating this, I will reward the points for that as well

Also, if you find an article saying this cannot be done, I need it to be referencing XP (preferable) or Windows 2000.

I think that's about the only way to do it.  I did find a few things about switching up the keys through the registry, but it scares me to just think about it.
