Capture Ctrl ALt Delete

Hi

Is there a way to capture CTRL - ALT - DELETE?

I need to write a program that will stop people logging in during set
periods.

If this is not possible, Can I lock the Keyboard & Mouse? (Even if CTRL -
ALT - DELETE still works).

Thanks

The whole point of pressing ctrl-alt-del when you log in is that other
applications cannot catch this key stroke. So I bet that it is not
possible.

There is a company that sells a dll that will do it. (So it is possible) and
if you install programs like 'PC Anywhere' you can lock the users keyboard.

Instead of Ctrl+Y redoing what's stored in 'future history', it REPLACES that information (which will then be forever lost) with a new command: delete current line. This shortcut is so ridiculous I actually contemplated that I must have accidentally changed it to this myself, but I don't see how that could have possibly happened. Where can I / should I report this? It doesn't exist in Visual C# .NET, so it's not generic to VS .NET.

Anyone know how to disable or redefine the Ctrl - hotkey which deletes a record? I have a multi page form that uses 14 records, each record handles 1-2 pages of the 18 page form. Occasionally , after being there initially, one of the records becomes deleted. I have found I can cause this by pressing CTRL and the MINUS key simultaneously. Even the confirm delete doesn't work. Any way to redefine the function of CTRL + MINUS? Bob
