API to disable\re-enable CTRL-ALT-DEL

P: n/a
I need to know the API call to disable the CTRL-ALT-DEL in a C# windows
form.

We have created a time clock application to run on a tablet PC to replace
the windows shell, we are going to hang it on a wall for associates to clock
in and out and check their benefits.

I will disable task manager from Domain Policies but I need to disable the
CTRL-ALT-DEL and also be able to renable it from a special passworded menu
for administrative purposes.

IIRC you cannot hook CTRL-ALT-DEL like this in Windows, since it is sent to
the Secure Desktop only.

Hello,

To disable CTRL+ALT+DEL and other keys in C#
have a look to commercial product
dWinlock (http://www.dwinlock.kassl.de).
