  • I don't know if CTRL+W shortcut can be disabled.

    There's a setting in the Local Group Policy Editor that can be configured to prevent users from closing Microsoft Internet Explorer and Windows Explorer: go to Local Computer Policy -> User Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Internet Explorer -> Browser Menus and configure the "File menu: Disable closing the browser and Explorer Windows" setting appropriately.

    Bye.
