    evil software again

    here's my situation: there's a program on a computer, and all I know about it is that it stops the windows key from doing it's thing. I'm guessing the programmers were smart enough to disable the alt+tab combo too... their intent was to have you call them to get a password to disable the program...

    I was just kinda wondering if there was any way that win2k protects that you can kinda minimize a program but keep it running

    this software's kinda propriatery (written by/for fujifilm), so I don't think I could use anything you would use in an explorer window...

    Run a virus checker. Otherwise, I'm not sure that I know what you're talking about.

    it's not a virus, it's a program that was intentionally put on the system...

    the software is there to interface with this machine: http://www.fujifilm.com/JSP/fuji/epa...roduct=6011355

    not that it'll help you any though...

    And why exactly are you trying to bypass this program?
    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    Ctrl-Escape puts up the start menu.

    You could run msconfig from start->run and see if its loading when windows loads and then disable it.
