Hi,

How can I stop the user from launching an application ( let's say NotePad) while he is working in Excel ?

So if the user strats NotePad , I want this to be detected by Excel and shuts NotePad immediatly and then display a MsgBox to the user informing them that they cannot have NotePad open while working in Excel.

Any thoughts would be much appeciated.

Thanks.
