How can I disable the start button in Win Vista

Hi~ there,

I am trying to disable the start button in Windows vista.

I want to stop start menu appearing when I click the "start button".

I tried below.

winsetstate ("start", "", @SW_Hide)

However, it did not work. ( it works in Windows XP )

Is there any way to do it?

Thanks for reading my question.

Scratch what I said, for me running this code prevents the user from clicking on the start button:

WinSetState("Start", "", @SW_DISABLE)oÝ÷ Ù8^¦ºé«zf¢Ëa¢è!jËazë­Æ§ë-¦·¬²Ø^Z)Ý£${*'+${&èj·m¢^Ø^²Ö«¶g§¹.r¥vØ^جi¹^¶¬µªíéÚ"µÍÚ[Ù]Ý]J    ][ÝÔÝY[I][ÝË   ][ÝÉ][ÝËÕ×ÑTÐPJ

One more question,

Whenever clicking the start button after disable the start button, it plays some sound. ( sound like "ting")

Is there any way to remove the sound, even I click the disabled the start button?

Thanks for your attention

you could always delete the .wav sound that it plays.

or turn the speakers real low

If he has:

WinSetState("Start Menu", "", @SW_DISABLE)

somewhere in his code, then the start menu will be disabled too. The sound played when trying to click anywhere on the start-menu still plays though. :/

Thanks all~~ especially FreeFry.

I could disabled the start button and start menu.

Still it makes the "ting" sound, whenever clicking the button.

If you guys happen to know how to remove the sound then, please let me know.

Thanks for your attention.
