Windows 7: How do I disable the Screen orientation hotkeys?

How do I disable the Screen orientation hotkeys?

This hotkey annoys me. A certain game I play involves using Ctrl, Alt, and the arrow keys. I constantly find myself accidentally pressing one of the screen rotation hotkeys, which interrupts my game and messes up my screen.

I've looked high and low for ways to disable this, and none have helped. There are no "graphics options" when I right click my desktop, and I can't find any Intel related graphics options. I don't have nVidia, either.
When I do 'msconfig' in Run, there is no Toshiba Rotation thingy to disable either.

I'm at my wits end.. Any help?

Hi SynthGrid and welcome to WSF.

It should be on the task bar by the clock. If it isn't you may have take it out of the startup in "msconfig" You'll find Under Options and Support Hotkey Functionality. Uncheck enable.
