What is ur cooperation level? You can try taking full control of the keyboard from windows, but this may cause some problems that you dont want.

just tell windows your running a screen saver (research this on to do this on google). just make sure you disable yoru screen saver status afterwards or ppl wont be able to use alt-tab or crtl-alt-del. i think though your should fix your alt-tab crashign instead.

I know that this wasn''t the question, but why not make it so your program doesn''t crash when you press alt-tab. I know I like being able to switch between applications, and I get a bit cheesed off if something stops me from doing it. Check the SDK, all their examples will allow you to alt-tab in and out without crashing.

Trying is the first step towards failure.

yes, but look at the rainbow six/blackthorn game. Not all games support alt-tab and are still fun to play.
