To use it just type, from the dos prompt:
MASM NOCAD; (of course you need MASM)
LINK NOCAD; (and of course you need a linker)
If you type NOCAD once it has been loaded, it will tell you so.
I've used it with DOS 3.30, but it works just as well under DOS
2.00 and above.
If you have any comment of any kind please let me know.
And have a nice new decade everybody.

Program to prevent CTRL+ALT+DEL from restarting the system
WARNING: Once loaded, you only have three choices:
1) Turn power off
2) Use a reset button (not all the machines have one)
3) Generate INT 19h
WARNING: If you have a program that uses INT 0CDh, change
this value in the equates line below to the number
of a not used INT. This method is used because
there are too many programs that hook INT 9 Vector and
we can't be sure it always points to the end of our
notice (and start of our ISR).
NOTE: For memory references i use parentheses instead of
square brackets because of ASCII-EBCDIC translations.
It works the same under Microsoft's MASM 4.0
NOTE: NOCAD won't work if you press CTRL+ALT+DEL from
a program that hooked to INT 9 before NOCAD
(example: SideKick). Solution: Load NOCAD before
everything else.

alt equ 1000b ;bit map for alt key
free_vector equ 0CDh ;vector used to prevent double loading
;change it if your system uses INT 0CDh
