Thread: SystemParametersInfo call in other versions?

    SystemParametersInfo call in other versions?


    I'm trying to disable the ALT+TAB and CTRL+ALT+DEL functionalities for a public
    terminal.

    From what I understand SystemParametersInfo only works in 95/98, does anyone
    know what I should use for NT/2000?

    I understand all the implications of turning these off and rebooting the
    terminal is not a problem, BUT if you've got a better solution, I'm all ears.

    thanks

    NT/2000 does not allow this. There may be a hack, but it's nothing I'm aware of.

    You could create a stripped down version of the operating system. Try
    www.vci.com . They have an toolkit that will rebuild Windows and leave out
    things you don't want. It also reduces the footprint. I'm not sure if they
    have one for 2000 or not. I used the NT version of it and was able to shrink
    NT 4 down to about 24 MB for the entire operating system and block ALT+TAB +
    CTRL+ALT+DEL functionalities. Microsoft uses them so maybe they will have
    something as well. There are links on the website above. Since this is a
    public terminal maybe this stuff might be appropriate.

    Thanks,
