KeyBlocking for NT (July 30th 1998)
New "Key Blocking for NT" utility is now available, securing the O/S for NT kiosk operators.

About NetShift Utilities:


The NetShift Development Team has put together a set of kiosk applications called NetShift Utilities. If you're a NetShift power-user, go ahead and try them out. Great care has been taken to ensure that NetShift Utilities operate as they should. But please keep in mind, these tools are not a part of NetShift. By using these unsupported tools, you are using them at your own risk.
The full range of utilities is available from the NetShift website

NSUtilKB
(167k self-extracting .exe)
This program is NetShift Software's long awaited "Key Blocking for NT" utility. The application will run under Windows NT only, it will not run under Windows 95. Windows 95 users only need to check the Preferences|Options|Key Blocking box in NetShift Setup Manager.

NSUtilKB.exe consists a self extracting executable that creates the following 5 files:-

NSNTBlok.exe.. Front end for managing driver installation, key filtering and auto logon.
FilterOn.exe.. Application to turn filtering on or off.
KBFilter.sys.. The keyboard driver.
NSNTBlok.ini.. Not supplied, created when the program is first run.
ReadMe.txt.. Helpful documentation.

This utility will block the following NT key combinations:

ctrl-alt-delete
ctrl-escape
ctrl-shift-escape
alt-tab

Because of the potential problems of disabling the ctrl-alt-delete combination under NT we have chosen to build this functionality into this separate utility rather than including it in Setup Manager.
