Preventing Ctrl+alt+delete

8 posts in this topic

Here's The Idea.

I'm going to create a simple script that basically locks down the computer. It will show an image and it will not let you access it

The way i will set it up - is to lock it so that when i/user hits enter - it will ask if i wish to access the computer, it will then disable the screen for 5 minutes - allowing the user to access the net or whatever, after that - the screen will come back up and it will lock up for another hour - preventing the user from accessing the destop or even ending the program the hard way

This program sounds crazy, but its for my own good - i tend to get side tracked (i have ADD) when i'm trying to pull an all nighter for college! I start doing something else or looking for more details way longer than i should - and i can't get work done because i waste all time on one problem instead of skipping it

Also - is there a way to hide the icon so you can't terminate it when you get back to the desktop

anything i can do would be great guys!

thanks!

Valuater made a PC Lockout that is in scripts and scraps that could help you here. (give you ideas at least)

#NoTrayIcon is the answer to the second question. That prevents an icon from ever being created. Not sure about the first part though, plus that's a pretty bold request.

I figured it out - lol - simple script - but there may be a better option - maybe some way of preventing it so when the script is paused (for say a window), it still will prevent task manager
