Disabling keys on the keyboard  for a project using a tab control in vb.net

I have a vb.net Windows app heavily using the tab control.  I would like the user to navigate to the tab by actually clicking on the tab.  I noticed that the arrow keys will advance to the next tab.  Is there a way to disable those keys.  I realize that I might be able to disable the tab and enable on the click event but that alone is a little bit undesirable because I am already disabling certain tabs as a result of applying access rights.  Is there another way?
