Have you tried this?

Firstly it appears only to work for Windows 9x, not NT.

Secondly to run this in a web page would require the user to have manically low security settings.

Beyond the fact that a user would need just about zero security in order to disable ctrl alt delete, if it were to happen, it's highly abusive of a webmaster to do something like that. Ctrl-Alt-Del is a very important set of keys for computer users. Many computers, mine included, require you to press those keys before entering a password. You also need it to access the task manager. Removing user's ability to press these keys is highly innapropriate. Especialy on a registry level, where it would apply to the entire computer, and would (presumably) not fix itself upon navagating away from the page.

Finaly, the fix you provide, harsh_hot, does not in fact disable Ctrl-Alt-Del. It simply disables the taskmanager, which is only one portion of the keysets abilities.

seems u r highly amaged by this trick to diable task manager...
see....the point is not of ethics here..whether doing this is wrong or right..the point is the challenge u get to solve this trick...

u r pretty right that this will work only with disabling task manager..it was d main objective 4 me.....i used this trick to make a virus which forces user to shutdown d PC bfore saving anything!!!

n one more thing..this was designed to work with local systems only...

mate, you should have a think!

writing viruses is not clever, but pathetic, irresponsible and geeky!

people appreciate people who can code, for benefit, not to screw a PC/Mac/Linux user over like making them shut a pc down without saving!!!!

personally, i hope you are investigated for this admission!

have a look at yourself.
