My guess would be that you need to set e.Cancel = false to ensure that the close isn't canceled. I think I recall reading somewhere that e.Cancel = true is actually the default. You have to specifically tell it that the close shouldn't be canceled. eg.

            if (!ValidText(txtPasskey.Text))
            {
                // Cancel the event and select the text to be corrected by the user.
                objform.CausesValidation = false;
                e.Cancel = true;
                txtPasskey.Select(0, txtPasskey.Text.Length);
                pctBoxLogin2.Visible = true;
            }
            else
                e.Cancel = false;

Try that anyway, see if it works.

First off, this code is pointless:

    Form objform = this.FindForm();

You're asking for the Form that contains "this"...which already is the Form!
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.windows.forms.control.findform(VS.80).aspx

    "Retrieves the form that the control is on."    

So everywhere you obtain the form using that construct you could simply use "this" directly.

Try this out to allow the form to be closed:

public partial class Admin_Load : Form
    {

        private bool UserClosing = false;

        public Admin_Load()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
        }

        protected override void WndProc(ref Message m)
        {
            const int WM_SYSCOMMAND = 0x0112;
            const int SC_CLOSE = 0xF060;

            if (m.Msg == WM_SYSCOMMAND && (int)m.WParam == SC_CLOSE)
            {
                UserClosing = true;
            }

            base.WndProc(ref m);
        }

        private void txtPasskey_Validating(object sender, CancelEventArgs e)
        {
            if (!UserClosing && !ValidText(txtPasskey.Text))
            {
                e.Cancel = true;
                txtPasskey.SelectAll(); 
                pctBoxLogin2.Visible = true;
            }
        }

        public bool ValidText(string stringvalue)
        {
            if (stringvalue == "pILy^caffs")
            {
                return true;
            }
            return false;
        }

    }

One of the root problems is that the Validating() event for the TextBox fires BEFORE the FormClosing() event of the Form.  Overriding the WndProc() method allows us to trap messages for the Form before they get routed to the proper control.  This gives us the opportunity to set the flag so we know the form is closing in the Validating event.

The SC_CLOSE message is sent when the user clicks on the 'X' in the top right of the window, or if they Right click on the window in the TaskBar and select 'Close window'.

If you want to programmatically close the window from code then you'd need to set the boolean flag manually like this:

   this.UserClosing = true;
   this.Close();

See:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.windows.forms.control.wndproc.aspx

    "All messages are sent to the WndProc method after getting filtered through the PreProcessMessage method."
