rename taskman.exe to something else,  then you can't pop it up with
LwinKey, or Ctrl-Alt-Esc at the logon prompt.  normal taskman use under
the explorer seems to be unaffected. (ctrl-alt-del under explorer still
will bring it up)

Win9x will never be "secure"  but there are various tricks that can be
done to slow down (note: not "stop") most malicious users.
