Hello Team,
I am developing an web page where i am suppose to display essential information to the user, and i want the user to only view it. I don't want to allow the user to press the print screen button. I have tried it in other way by clearing the clipboard but its disables my cop+paste feature...until i reboot my system.
I am totally stuck at this situation, I would be happy to get help from all of u experts.

Thanks in advance

Short and simply: you can not.

but atleast there should be some provision to track the keypress of the printscreen button

Since takes no time to disable JavaScript in a browser, any action you take in this direction is useless at the end.
On the other hand I can use Slicer or any other screen capture utility (even Word 2010 has a built-in screen grabber) instead of pressing PrintScrn key, or I can use my phone to take a picture of the screen.
