I'm trying to create a program in C# that disable mouse and keyboard on my Windows 8 VM (I don't want to kill my own computer).

What I have tried:

I found some content on Internet that proposed to use register and use this to disable keyboard :

To disable: Add a new REG_BINARY value called "Scancode Map" to "HKEY_LOCAL_ MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout" with a data value of "00000000000000000300000000005BE000005CE000000000". Unfortunetly it doesn't work :/

Does someone have any idea ? Thank you so much for helping me :)

Probably a bad udea.
Just curious the reason why? I can't see anything useful for it.

Easily done with low level mouse and keyboard hooks. You just don't pass the mouse and keyboard messages up the hook chain.
