I really want that the desktop should be made inactive as I donot want that user of my application should be able to navigate to anything else except and only through my application

In windows, you can replace the default shell (explorer) with your own program by changing the shell setting in the boot section of system.ini.

Of course, this kind of jack-booted behavior is really only acceptible in a turnkey system. If you release a normal app that takes over the whole OS in this manner, you will have a lot of unhappy customers.
