Below is basically how to bypass most "secure" desktop programs:
Turn on your computer. (Tuff one there) There will be
a two or so second gap between seeing your windows desktop and seeing the
explorer bar across the bottom. During that two second gap, hit control +
alt + delete... this will load task manager.

And the solution to that trick is to simply remove taskman.exe from the
machine ..something folk used to do when attempting(!) to secure 95
desktops before there were any third-party solutions. Another trick was
to use the keyboard remapper from the MS KernelToys to remap one of
those pesky CTRL, ALT or DEL keys.
