Windows 7: How disable Ctrl key and Alt key shortcuts

How disable Ctrl key and Alt key shortcuts

I need to know how to disable to disable the CTRL and ALT keys. I continually hit these keys prompting tons of pop ups I do not want (ie CTRL and N opens a new explorer window, CTRL and P brings up print; ALT and T brings up tools within my window). Sometimes I get as much as 4 and 5 windows short cuts popping up while I am typing away. I cannot stand it! Please help me figure out how to stop this annoyance! Thanks!

*endured 7 pop ups for short cuts (make that 9), just while typing this (10...)* *Sigh*

You can use the program KeyTweak to disable the keys, along with any others you want to (many use it to disable the Num Lock and Caps Lock keys).
