You'll need to supply more details regarding what you are trying to accomplish.

I have a J2EE Application which runs in full screen mode . When the application is running I need Windows Key and Key combinations of Ctrl , Atl , Esc ,Enter ,Del to be disabled . How can I achieve this by making code level changes ?

It is impossible to block all key combinations.

Look into scripts that do hotkeys.
