Does anyone here knows how to disable the Alt+Tab function in Winxp? Because i want to apply it to my desktop locker...
I dont have any problems regarding on Windows Key on keyboard bcause i plan to kill Explorer.exe whenever my desktop locker runs so that the desktop, including the taskbar, will disappear.

I read that you can do this by editing the registry at:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop
Name: Coolswitch
Type: REG_SZ
Value: 1 enable switching
Value: 0 disable switching

Please note that I have not tested this so backup your registry before trying it. Let us know if it works.
