Default "..\Policies\WinOldApp\Disabled" problem

If you set "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVerion\Pol icies\WinOldApp\Disabled" to 1, It disables DOS applications as well as Win32 console applications. If you try to run a Win32 console application, you would still get the same error message you got for the DOS applications. However, the Win32 console application would still be resident in memory, and there would be no way to kill the application. The CPU usage also goes to 100%, because the idle detection in Windows 98 loses effect.

I was just wondering about why Windows doesn't disable Win32 console applications without problems. You can't even disable console applications in Windows XP. However, you can still disable DOS and Win16 applications in Windows XP.

Here's another alternative. Rename, move, or delete the WINOA386.MOD file in your system directory. You would probably not want to delete it.
