Windows 7: Tweak to re-enabled system-wide hotkeys when elevated app has forucs?

Tweak to re-enabled system-wide hotkeys when elevated app has forucs?

In 7, when an elevated application has focus, all the system-wide hotkeys registered by various applications become inoperative. (Switching focus to a non-admin process brings the hotkeys back).

I am an avowed keyboarder, so this bothers me a lot, especially that a lot of apps require admin provs - many backup apps, tweaking utilities such as TuneUp, etc. The sudden lack of my configured hotkeys is quite annoying. Interestingly, the built-in Windows hotkeys (e.g. Win+arrows) do not get disabled, only the hotkeys registered by third-party software do.

I've tried a number of tweakers but none seems to offer an option to override this behavior. Perhaps it cannot be helped at all. Does anyone know?

(on edit: seems I cannot change the title - multiple typos there, oops!)
