Conditional Stop on Splashscreen with Form

I have a Splashscreen that when I open my spreadsheet, it automatically comes up.  It has a set of conditions that the user must adhere to and a button that says "Accept".  The problem I have is that there is no ability to halt access.  In other words, the user can simply move on to the next screen.  What needs to happen is that until the button is pressed, access to the rest of the spreadsheet should be disabled.

Thank you.

How are you opening the user form (Splash)? Ensure that the user form loads in Modal Mode.

Sid,

Greetings again!  Here's what I'm using to load it from "This Workbook"

Option Explicit

    Sheets("Splash").Select
    Application.OnTime Now() + TimeSerial(0, 0, 1), "module1.ShowForm"
    Worksheets("timer").RunCheck
   
    End Sub
   
'This code opens the splash screen
