STOPBOOT is a public domain program that intercepts
calls to the Ctrl-Alt-Del key combination and asks for
verification. The calling format is:

[d:]Stopboot

When called, STOPBOOT gives no response. But any
attempt to reboot using Ctrl-Alt-Del gets a

ARE YOU SURE? (Y/N)

response.

If you've ever lost data, or killed your print
spooler, by booting when you shouldn't have, STOPBOOT belongs
in your AUTOEXEC.BAT file.

STOPBOOT was tested in a pure IBM PC environment,
and it runs fine. A few things should be noted though.
First, do not attempt to reboot in the middle of a disk
operation because data in transit may be lost. Second, if
you reply Y to the ARE YOU SURE prompt, STOPBOOT tells you
to try again, and you must again Ctrl-Alt-Del.
