I have disabled the Task Manager from the registry. After disabling it, when I press Ctrl+Alt+Del a dialog box appears which tells me that the Task Manager has been disabled by the Administrator.

How can I disable this type of dialog box, warning me that the Task Manager has been disabled?

You want to disable the Ctrl-Alt-Del dialog box? I'm pretty sure that one is protected. – heavyd Apr 7 '10 at 5:25
I want to disable the notification dialog box of window, which notify me that your task manager have been disabled by your administrator. – Siddiqui Apr 7 '10 at 5:28
Could you edit your question to add a screenshot of the dialog you are trying to hide? – heavyd Apr 7 '10 at 5:31

I really don't see a solution to this other than perhaps having a program in the background that captures the keystrokes and analyzes the key combinations before allowing them to be sent to the task manager.

If the designers of the OS decided to add the functionality that you're asking for, I think it would be another tool for abuse by virus writers, so perhaps that's why it's not readily available.
