Disable mouse and keyboard

Recommended Posts


Hi Guys,

I'm french so sorry for my bad english.. .i'll try to explain my problem : i've got a 250 computers on windows XP SP3 with active directory . I've installed ssh to connect as admnistrator to thoose computers. Well, now i can setup programs (so with administrator rights) but i want to lock keyboard and mouse during this instalaltion, how i can i do ?

If i use "blockinput" command it freezes keyboard and mouse in administrator session but not the screen of the user that is connected on the computer ;) ...

I've tried to use runas() command to load the profil of the user that is connected but it ask me about his password which is in active directory and not on this computer... so how i can do?

I've try to disable mouse and keyboard drivers with devcon.exe but it can disable floppy, etc but not mouse and keyboard :) ...

I've a idea : Is there a way to find the password in hide profile that is used when active directory is turn off?

Have you got another idea?
