Windows 7: How to disable CTRL+Z in windows explorer?

How to disable CTRL+Z in windows explorer?

Sometimes you want to do CTRL+Z in an application but since it's not focused you happen to do it in windows explorer by error, undoing stuff you've done like renaming/moving directories. So I would like to disable the CTRL+Z hotkey in windows explorer (not in other applications though); I don't use it anyway.

I've found this:
Disable Global Hot Keys
but it only works for combinations which uses the WinKey.

Short of writing your own script to suppress the key combination in explorer.exe, no. Sorry.
