SOLVED! How to disable Ctrl Alt Del

Recommended Posts

Hey there,

Probably you know about the many questions on this forum, how to disable Ctrl-Alt-Del. I searched the whole forum bot there was not only one answer that worked. But now i found a way on my own hot to prevent that. And btw I have to say that this if f*cking easy, so shame on you :) You can try it, it works sure on windows 7 and vista. I also included a hotkey function to exit, but it takes up to 10 seconds until you can access the ctrl alt del screen again. Please tell me if you found out a better way and tell me what is your meaning about my script. Thank you :)

-snip-

Edit: This is the hard way, and i just wanted to show how it could be done. I am confused, no one before me mentioned this script

you didnt disable Ctrl-Alt-Del, and it is not fire and forget.   Not displaying the security or login options when you press Ctrl-Alt-Del will eventually cause a hard stop and a warning telling you this behavior is occuring.

First of all i just answered many questions that were on the forum, and the second thing is that disabling ctrl alt del can also be useful. Why should i get a warning? I have never said that i am going to use that for a virus

not here :doh:  

Windows will throw an error dialog that says some stuff like "Could not display login and security options when ctrl-alt-del was pressed please hold down the power button if this continues".

Out of curiosity what is it useful for exactly?

I am asking myself the same thing. It was "cool" (I think) to do this back in the early days of scripting on the likes of XP, but now it's 2015, in which acts such as this, are just idiotic.

If the thought is to stop a user from locking/logging off/rebooting while you're running a script, there are much easier ways of doing this. I wouldn't go so far as to say this is malicious, but it is definitely pointless.

Sorry if i didn't understand you, that is because i am german, so don't wonder about my bad english. I know the warning problem, this is only if you do not have any other options. It is weird that the message only pops up on some computers, e.g. not on mine

I only posted this script because there were so many questions about that topic. Search for "disable ctrl alt del" and you'll find many questions. That is the answer to all of it :D

All that aside, it never once crossed your mind to post in the examples section? Obvious I know, but support questions are here and working examples are there. Everything else fits in either Chat or Dev Chat.

It is a straight timeout. execute that script, hit ctrl-alt-del, and wait roughly 30 seconds.  This is most certainly not an answer for people wishing to block or reassign the ctrl-alt-del key combination if windows has a built in defense.

i imagine you are just waiting for a timeout or threshold that has multiple factors.  Pretty reliably I can execute your script, hit ctrl-alt-del, wait a few seconds, repeat, and i never get further than a third time before windows alerts me of the issue.

But the thing is, that you cannot access the ctrl alt del screen, and that is the only sense of my script. Not more

sorry for the edits that dont match your quote, i determined it was a straight timeout.

Your title and your assertion that this solution answers 'many questions on the forum', do not match with simply denying access to the ctrl-alt-del screen.  And even then the only thing this script does causes Windows to pause explorer.exe and pop an alert for the user against an alarming black background.

      am trying to make the list of features in list view and control it
      am using the dism command line to read output
      i've made the code
      but i found some problems
      what i need is the list of features in 2d array
      $array[$n][0]= name $array[$i][1] = state
      when i tested the code
      it give me some results that i don't need to it e.g
      ------ ------  | --------
      or
      name       | state
      i need just the list of features and there state
      please help me to do that
      here is my example
      #RequireAdmin #NoTrayIcon #include <AutoItConstants.au3> Wow64EnableWow64FsRedirection(false) _Windows_Get_Features() func _Windows_Get_Features() local $a_FeaturesArray[1][2] $a_FeaturesArray[0][0] local $i_Dism_Run = Run("DISM /online /english /get-features /format:table", "", @sw_hide, BitOR($STDERR_CHILD, $STDOUT_CHILD)) local $s_OutputDism = "", $a_OutPutDism While 1 $s_OutputDism = StdoutRead($i_Dism_Run) If @error Then exitLoop if ($s_OutputDism = "") or (StringRegExp($s_OutputDism, "^((\-){1,})?(?:\s)\|?(?:\s)((\-){1,})$", 0) = 1) then ContinueLoop if (StringRegExp($s_OutputDism, "((([\s\d\-\+\_\,]{1})\|([\s\d\-\+\_\,]{1})){1,})", 0) = 1) then $a_OutPutDism = StringSplit($s_OutputDism, @lf) for $i = 1 to $a_OutPutDism[0] if msgBox(1, $i, $a_OutPutDism[$i]) = 1 then exitLoop next endIf Wend endFunc func Wow64EnableWow64FsRedirection($b_Enabled) local $h_OpenFS = DLLOpen("kernel32.dll") local $Return = DllCall($h_OpenFS, "boolean", "Wow64EnableWow64FsRedirection", "boolean", $b_Enabled) if @error then DLLClose($h_OpenFS) Return SetError(@error, @extended, -1) else DLLClose($h_OpenFS) Return $Return[0] endIf endFunc

      Hello.
       
      For a project of a tool, I have to launch a program.
      This one: Display Properties control (run desk.cpl)
      I have to resize it, so we can see what's necessary.

      I'm getting there.
      The problem is that there is a drop-down menu: so I want to disable it.
      How to do this?

      I already did a test with the notepad. By deactivating the "close" button.
      Here is the code:
       
      Run("Notepad.exe") WinWait("[CLASS:Notepad]") $Hwnd = WinGetHandle("[CLASS:Notepad]") $menu = DllCall("user32.dll","hwnd","GetSystemMenu","hwnd", $Hwnd, "int",0) DllCall("user32.dll", "int", "RemoveMenu", "hwnd", $menu[0] , "int", 0xF060, "int", 0x0);SC_CLOSE MsgBox(0,'',1) $menu = DllCall("user32.dll","hwnd","GetSystemMenu","hwnd", $Hwnd, "int",1) DllCall("user32.dll", "int", "RemoveMenu", "hwnd", $menu[0] , "int", 0xF060, "int", 0x0);SC_CLOSE
      I would like to do the same, but with the drop-down menu (with DllCall).
      Is it possible to disable / block (or other) the drop-down menu of a program?

      Thank you for your answers.
      Sincerely,
      Thomas.

      Hello,
      global $y, $x #RequireAdmin Global $Paused HotKeySet("{NUMPAD2}", "Pause") HotKeySet("{NUMPAD8}", "End") Opt("MouseClickDownDelay", 30) #include <ImageSearch2015.au3> #include <ButtonConstants.au3> #include <ComboConstants.au3> #include <EditConstants.au3> #include <GUIConstantsEx.au3> #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <StaticConstants.au3> #include <WinAPI.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include <UpDownConstants.au3> #include <Misc.au3> Sleep(6000) Sleep(3000) $search1 = _WaitForImageSearch("goo.bmp", 30, 1, $x, $y, 10) If $search1 = 1 Then MouseMove(1500, 1500, 10) Sleep(100) MouseClick("right") Sleep(300) EndIf I've this script.
      The problem is that it work the way it is supposed to but doesnt work on a friends pc, even tho we have the same image search in C/programms(x86)/autoit3/include 
      and the same dll in system 32.
      When he starts the script on the desktop without having the "goo.bmp" file on his pc, the script finds it and right clicks the given location, while for me it doesnt and i have to open the folder with the "goo.bmp" picture in it.

      Im out of ideas on what could cause the problem.
      Any help?
      Thank you in advance

      Hello Forum,
      As said in the title, I'm searching a way to disable all tabstops in a GUI. My GUI includes 15 buttons and 3 edit controls.
      My questions:
      - is there a way to disable all tabstops at a time
      - is there a way to list all controls of a GUI and then disable tabstops one by one
      - or should I use the following line after each button creation:
      _WinAPI_SetWindowLong(GUICtrlGetHandle(-1), $GWL_STYLE, BitAND(_WinAPI_GetWindowLong(GUICtrlGetHandle(-1), $GWL_STYLE), BitNOT($WS_TABSTOP))) Thanks in advance for your valuable help!
      Thoms
      Edit: or maybe disable TAB key? I don't remember how to do!

      Hi all.
       
      Because of me wondering if I could access the key/value pair arrays with the numbers as indexes, I have found out that the zeroth element for some reason doesn't return anything.
      Here's the example:
       
      local $r[2] $r["test1"]="hello" $r["test2"]="how are you" msgbox(64, $r[0], $r[1]) ; prints the ["test2"] but not ["test1"]. Is this even supposed to be a thing?  
       
      BTW, I haven't seen Autoit get updated since 2015; is it abandened or something?
      Any help/clarification appreciated.
