Is there a way to make the excel pop-up with a msgbox, "click here"...
whenever the user tries window+L (That is try to lock the system)?
the basic idea is to track how long was the person logged on to the system the whole time.
Whenever a user click on pop up the macro to tarck the time in the sheet with now()....which i can take care of.
I want the user to be unable to lock the system unless user click on the button..
when the user logs on back, they same they will have to click on the pop up again before they begin to do anything else.
If this is possible then, it'll be great. Please help.
Thanks Pedie:)
