    1) Do you really use Windows CE? I would guess not. That link is worthless.
    2) Why would you want to do such a thing? That's a really obtrusive feature.
    3) Compiler/OS.

    Compiler and OS are at the bottom of the signiture.

    I'll take your word for number 1;

    for number 2: is there any way to delete the complete contents of the clipboard?

    EmptyClipboard(). Why are you doing all these things? Is this still the thing about opening up a GMail account? Why do you not simply make a GET request with the user/pass data in the first place instead of fiddling with round-about ways of simulating keyboard and mouse events? I distinctly remember someone suggesting this in one of your threads and then you practically ignoring it.
