If what you're trying to say is that you don't want to turn it off globally,
but just for your applciation, then you may be out of luck.
But anyhow, what you cite is enough information -- should be, at least.
There's an application that does handle that, and you can simply run a
debugger, hook up to appropriate "get control data" (or somesuch) functions
and look what API is called in order to change the status. I'd start with
changing the setting and comparing the registry dump before and after the
change. If it's in the registry, you'll have it that way.
