Popup windows are spawned entirely by client side code.

As to the "Can't close or minimize this" part:
In a webapp, this (thankfully) is not possible.
You don't own the user's desktop or browser and should never be given the power to restrict the user from closing or minimizing windows.



Moving to HTML/Javascript where client side code issues are dicussed.

You would have to put a layer on the screen, since pop up windows can not do what you asked.
