i am trying to work out if it possible to disable the ctrl alt delete reboot function. i run a small backpackers and we are setting up a couple of pc's as internet computers. we've found some free software that will run the pc's and all that kind of stuff however it has a small problem in that if someone hits the ctrl alt delete keys to reboot, it circumvents the net cafe software, giving them free access to the pc's. as we are a backpackers, i would like to leave the pc's available 24/7 for use, as the software (cybera) lets us issue
time limited credit chits so they can use the pc's whenever they want and i don't have to be standing there to time them and take payments...
so, how can i stop the ctrl alt delete function? i've looked through the forums and can't see an answer.
the server pc is using windows XP home edition, and the client computer is using windows 2000 professional.
the ecafe software is cybera. if anyone can suggest alternate software (that needs to be free as at the moment everything i have and much more is invested in this place and i can barely afford to buy groceries right now, much less buy new stuff!)
if there is any more information that i should include, please let me know and i'll provide it. i'm fairly quick to pick stuff up but this is NOT my area of expertise and i'm only just starting to get the pc's etc etc set up - but we can't give public access until this little 'glitch' is fixed. if there is any way for the backpackers to get free access, they will discover it and the whole hostel will know within seconds! i'm speaking from experience with people rorting the washing machines, pool tables etc ..and plus i used to be a backpacker so i know how it goes.
many many thanks - i'm sure this will just be the start of many posts on these topics
