No chance, you would need to implement your own version of MSGINA to do this and certainly not from a scripting level.

if you can detect the eventKey Alt, can you not detect the eventKey Ctrl?

Yes, but the combination of those three keys is handled at a very low level. I think you'd have to install a Windows hook to cancel it.

I've seen some code that works on Windows 9x but not on NT. It's so dangerous because if a password protected screen saver or the like came up you'd never be able to log back in...

Picco,

Its a function for trapping or monitoring whats going on inside an OS (usually at interrupt level). They can be local (for one or more App), or global, for the whole OS. They're used alot these days by hackers writing keylogging apps.

Cheers
Joe

thinking seriously about trying to completely disable Ctrl+Alt+Del - it not something that is not going to be either easy to do or something that can't be done with scripting
