My web application uses internet explorer browser, and I need to prevent the user from hitting F5 key, Backspace key, ALT + Arrow Keys and Mouse right click events.
How do I accomplish this using javascript?

Whatever code you may try to restrict user from pressing F5 so the user simply could not cause multiple postbacks, as is the most common scenario, there is always alternates to perform the refresh of the page.

So it is better to code in your server-side script (ASP.NET, PHP) appropriately to restrict user from performing multiple postbacks.
