disable ctrl alt delete not possible?

Nov 1, 2011 at 10:35 PM


I'm pretty sure on Windows 7 it is not possible to globally disable Ctrl+Alt+Delete, but i thought i would ask anyway to be sure?

I.e. i can monitor / capture it, but e.Handled = true; has no effect.

Not only with Windows 7, but all systems from XP up (possibly Windows 2000 also), Ctrl+Alt+Delete cannot be suppressed by keyboard hooks.

Your options are to replace the task manager, write a keyboard driver, or a GINA stub.
