What kind of keyboard do you have? I know Logitech's software allows you to disable it when you are gaming...

I read that one first....except it doesn't show you how to remove the Windows Key functionality in its entirely...

Shawn...if you want to add the reg key I made to the tutorial...it disables that key entirely until you delete the key from the registry...
