why do you want to disable the keyboard ? if you want to disable USB or want your users not to install new devices then that can be done using AD. you can deny user installing the device drivers

I want to disable the keyboard for some users becasuse they only need to work with a handhelp scanner and mouse, and the keyboard entry give me a problem with the Application we are currently running.

it's not possible to disable the keyboard in windows - the only way is to unplug it....

does the keyboard input cause problems with the application, or is it that users are doing stuff they shouldn't be able to do...

if the latter is the case, you could get the application to run as the shell and remove ability to run anything else?

The problem is that the Keyboard input is causing problem with the data recolected by the Application.

One question running the application has a shell could I disable the Input data from the PS/2 Port???

If this is posible what type of application (Software) Do you know that can do that???

i don't know of any software which will allow you to block keyboard input, and running as a shell wouldn't disable keyboard input, it would simply prevent any other program from opening etc..

but you could maybe use a keyboard lock program which would lock the keyboard untill a special password is typed it... you may find something like computer lock from

would help - i've not used it so don't know how efficient it would be...
