Without using a keyboard and mouse hook, this is not possible on XP nor any Windows platform. You should not do this, either. If you want to disable input messages to be handled, set Cursor.Current to Cursors.WaitCursor. This disables input processing for the entire application. This is all you should do, accordingly to Windows programming guidelines.

If your application modifies system state, be sure to tell the user that and that they should wait. Give them a progress bar if possible, and nice friendly wait message.

Also if possible, make your operation atomic. Depending on what you do, you could use transactions to make sure the batch of operations fails or completes as a whole. If your performing database routines, all major RDBMS's support atomic operations. You can futher use transactions in ADO.NET using IDbTransaction implementations like SqlTransaction and OleDbTransaction, etc.
