This small code sample shows how to disable the Start Menu button through code, simply paste it into a BAS module and use :


'
' Paste this into a Code Mode (BAS)
'
option Explicit
'
private Declare Function FindWindowEx Lib "user32" _
        Alias "FindWindowExA" (byval hWnd1 as Long, byval hWnd2 as Long, _
        byval lpsz1 as string, byval lpsz2 as string) as Long
'
private Declare Function EnableWindow Lib "user32" (byval hwnd as Long, _
        byval fEnable as Long) as Long

public Sub EnableStartMenuButton(byval bEnable as Boolean)
'
' Don't forget to re-enable it !
'
    Dim lHwnd as Long
' 
    lHwnd = FindWindowEx(0&, 0&, "Shell_TrayWnd", vbNullString)
    lHwnd = FindWindowEx(lHwnd, 0&, "Button", vbNullString)
    Call EnableWindow(lHwnd, bEnable)
'
End Sub
'
'

Make sure that you remember to re-enable the start menu button at some point or it could get very frustrating !
