What operating system are you using? Windows?
As I understand it, you can't block, modify, or otherwise access Ctrl-Alt-
Del while running under Windows: it is the "Secure Attention Key", and is
designed to be virtually impossible to interfere with. It's not *quite*
impossible, but it is the deepest, darkest black magic. Microsoft makes
it close enough to impossible as makes no difference even for experienced
As a newbie, well, put it this way: it's like somebody saying "Hi guys, I
have a shiny new Swiss Army Knife, the one with the screwdriver and the
corkscrew. I'd like to build my own Space Shuttle -- what do I do?"
