Disable F8 during startup - Disable Advanced startup options scree
I want to disable the user ability to press F8 during startup and so the
Advanced startup options screen.

In Windows XP I did this via a new NTLDR but what is the way to go on
Windows Vista?

Many thanks,
Chris

RE: Disable F8 during startup - Disable Advanced startup options scree
I have found this software:

Just wondering if anyone has tried it and/or has any other alternative
solution to disabling safe mode -- hopefully not involving breaking the
hardware or removing/hacking OS files and features.

Thanks!
