    ok this has been going on for a bit, thought i would just deal with it for a while until it just got annooying/irritating.

    also hotkeys like
    windows+c *control panel*
    windows+u *shutdown*
    windows+h *help*
    windows+s *search*
    windows+r *run* <i used to use this one all the time, very annoying>

    for some reason Windows+L *user switch/logoff* works :coolugh:

    i dont exactly recall when they stopped working, but does anyone have a solution? thanks :wavey:
