    custom screensaver in XP

    I'm creating a screensaver with its own password protection, and I found the SystemParametersInfo() function to block ALT+TAB and CTRL+ALT+DELETE but since I have windowsXP it obviously won't work. I've looked all around for a way to disable these for XP, and havent been able to find any. Is there any way at all to do it?

    You should try hooking into the OS's screen saver architecture....it's not that hard.
