I figured I'd share this....

    In the time I have been a member here I have noticed alot of posts for Disabling CTRL-ALT-DEL on NT/XP .....

    I subscribe to PSC's MailingList, every day I am sent an email on submissions made to PSC. One that came up today was for disabling CTRL-ALT-DEL on NT/XP. I own XP SP2 and have tested this code out myself and it works.

    What it does is through the registry it changes the computer's policy and you get a messagebox that says

    "Task Manager has been disabled by your administrator"

    if you click the checkbox to Disable Task Manager and then exit the program the setting is saved to have those buttons disabled even though the program is no longer running .... you just simply have to run the program again and uncheck the box or go and manually change your computer's policy. Or why not just make the policy change in an unload event or something.

    It has some other functions like killing processes and stuff too.

    As I mentioned earlier, I figured this would help those who have posted here for this problem. This is not my work so if you use it as I say I found it, so please give credit where credit is due if you use it!
