    Disabling Cntrl+Alt+Backspace

    Does anyone know how to disable Control + Alt + Backspace on a per user basis? I can disable it completely in the xorg.conf, but I was just wondering about doing it for specific users. Google doesn't seem to have much about this so I figured I would try here.

    How are you, hoped you will fine.....
    Follow these instructions.

    Click Start
    Click Run
    Enter gpedit.msc in the Open box and click OK
    In the Group Policy settings window
    Select User Configuration
    Select Administrative Templates
    Select System
    Select Ctrl+Alt+Delete options
    Select Remove Task Manager
    Double-click the Remove Task Manager option
    And as I mentioned above, since the policy is Remove Task Manager, by disabling the policy, you are enabling the Task Manager.

    Thank You,
    Pakistan Boy,

    I appreciate your help, but you have the wrong operating system in mind as well as the wrong key combo. I want to disable Control + Alt + Backspace (as most of you probably know, this skills the x server) for specific users. Found how to disable it completely, but just wanted to know if there was a way to only do it for specific users.
