Is there a way to disable the CTL-ALT-DEL function in Win2k? I do not want the option of rebooting or shutting down a machine in the field -- I want that to be possible only through the network connection. Our users are accustomed to rebooting when they get into problems, which was fine with OS2 since it always recovered, but I don't want them to reboot the Win2k boxes the same way. The only way I want the machine to reboot is by someone at the site actually pressing the button on the box or rebooting via the network.
This can be done through a system policy. Open Administrative Tools and then Local Security Policy, and then look in Security Options for the option to disable the CTRL-ALT-DEL requirement for logon.
