    I was wondering if there is a way to run Windows XP in kiosk mode, but I do not want Internet Explorer, I want it to run my .jar file. It runs on startup full screen, but the issue is alt tab, ctrl alt del, and that good stuff will over ride the jar.

    Thanks for your help!

    I'm not sure that you can, usually you can set IE to run in Kiosk mode, but that doesn't help with the ctrl + alt+ del as you mentioned still works. Apparently there is no way to disable those keys.
    I assume you require a keyboard? I wonder if you can get a special one without the ctrl + alt+ del keys?

    Here is a site that I found that tells you how to set up a kiosk, but it requires additional software to be bought. :(

    There has to be a way, if they did it. I just have to figure out how now :) Yes, I need a keyboard, and it cannot be a physical thing, it has to be software because someone could plug in there own keyboard.

    I don't necessarily need kiosk mode, I just need the features that it provides such as no alt tab, no windows key, etc.

    Thanks for the help!
