an IE window with no minimize and close buttons

My environment is Windows Server 2003, .NET Visual Studio Academic 2003,
ASP.NET. I need to create a page with no top title bar, no mimize button, no
maximize button, no close button. It is for a student exam system. I don't
want students to be able to copy from other windows. I have put a close
button on the page in order to close the page. I have been searching though
the website, all I can do now is to diable the maximize button, the other two
buttons are still on the web page. I have tried the hta application, it is
working, but how to generate a hta application from aspx pages is another
problem for me. I need your suggesions earnestly. Thanks for your help.

anything you send to the user can be copied. They control their browser.

hta's run locally and would have to be dowloaded to the user

Jon,

Thanks for your quick answer.

Let me explain more about my situation. I have made the exam IE page to
full screen. So once students are on the exam page, they can only see the
exam page itself. And I have disabled all function key, like F1-F12, ALT,
CTRL, SHIFT, etc. So the student won't be able to go to any other pages if
they are on the exam IE page. I also disabled the maximize button. But
because students can still see the minimize button and close button, they can
click on them. Somehow I have to either disable these two buttons or just
make them invisible to students.

Hope my explanations would give you more clues about what I want. I want
those two buttons, minimize and close buttons on the top-right corner
disappear or disabled. Can you help me?

No, you only *think* that you disabled something. Any student worth his
salt will find way to get the HTML pages sent to the client. You must
face it now, there are no ways to do what you want. Even the keys you
*think* that you disabled (using JavaScript I guess) are not really
disabled. And anyway, your pages are cached. If you don't want your
IT-versed students to laugh at you and cheat their heart off, you'd
better find another way ;-)

current versions of browser do not allows this due to securty issues (that
why a hta works). if you control the machines the browser run on, you can
make your site trusted, and it may allow it.
