I work at a high school where kids like to mess with the computers any way they can. Thanks to the utility posted here, I can put a splash screen up to block the kids from closing windows or viewing things they shouldn't when a computer is running a re-installation.

However, crafty students can still use CTRL+ALT+DEL or CTRL+SHIFT+ESC during the process and can view the task manager to kill processes or log off the account. Are there any utilities out there that would disable that functionality temporarily? An .exe that could be run as a post install task that would disable these would be awesome but I haven't been able to find any.

aggybong,

Try this: http://downloads.kace.com/support/downloads/k2000/scripts/run_disable.exe

Put it as an application post installation task and move it to be first, your splash screen as second.
This will lock input of the keyboard and mouse until kcleanup.exe is gone from the systemdrive, which is when the splash screen disappears as well.

Please let us know here if it works for you.

The mouse was disabled until I hit ctrl+alt+del, which still worked. Then I was able to use it along with any of the normal CTRL+ALT+DEL options (log off, restart, etc)

Also, is there anything that can be done about the pre-install task screen as well?
