I'd go for putting a current on the keyboard and wetting it beforehand. 
Another option would be to make them look at
http://www.starterupsteve.com/seizurebots/ for three minutes when they 
press *any* button.

Bottom line, I guess you can prevent it, but then capturing software 
like irfanview or snagit will do the trick.  Never a good
plan to mess with keyboard shortcuts of the operating system.
