Hi,
I'm developing a cybercafe management client/server application, and I have a very hard task in hand.
I need that clients machines, when unauthorized to be used, have both mouse and keyboard disabled, while the screen shows nothing but a "Welcome to the cyber - for navigating contact cyber operator", absolutely nothing else. Then when the operator authorizes the machine, OS is shown.
The idea is to make a multiplaform app for both client and server.

I already know how to freeze the screen, but when the user presses alt+ctrl+delete, or alt+tab, or the windows OS start key my magic window dissapears. I already implemented the KeyListener interface and captured and consumed all the keyboard events, and it still won't work.

Help me please!

Please do not post the same question in multiple forums. It causes confusion and duplication of effort as the community tries to help everyone.
