The function of the CTRL-C and CTRL-BREAK
key sequences can be disabled by using a software program (BREAK)(4) --the line, "DEVICE=BREAK.SYS/C" is included in the CONFIG.SYS file; (note that the DOS "break=on/off" command does nothing but tell DOS how often it should check for the CTRL-C/CTRL-BREAK key commands, it does not disable those key commands).
