CTRL+ALT+DEL

I need to disable CTRL+ALT+DEL, ALT+TAB, ALL WINKEY, anything that will allow access around my kiosk application in vista. I have it setup for a survey and cannot allow further access unless the admin (me) enters a password. I would appreciate a cut & paste code. Thank you.

Will disable all win keys - Registry File
here is how you can trap them by code so they can be allowed as soon as your program ends or as your code allow them back.

None of these was are working to capture CTRL+ALT+DEL or any other key for that matter. I could be doing something wrong where I place the code but it all appears to be correct. Thank you.

I don't know about Vista, but there is a registry hack that works in WinXP:

can you capture the cursor keys using that code ?

That did not work in Vista. Cursor keys? I will need to keep the mouse enabled.
the arrow keys , tab , home , alt+tab , win key ..

were you able to capture any key codes using that code ?

take a look at this link

some suggested

Delete "taskmgr.exe" in Windows\System32
If you want to delete any window triggered by "CTRL+ALT+DEL"


for vista , but i would go for the first link first.

I need to keep all of the keys working except CTRL, ALT, ESC, F1-F9, PRT SCR, SCROLL LOCK, PAUSE, WIN. The code doesn't seem to work for any of the keys. I will be contacting Microsoft today to see if they have an answer.

Thank you!
