Windows 7: Disable NumLock key to prevent accidental turn off

I tried the keytweak software and found that it works on my computer perfectly.

Hi Petey7, You, me and the rest of the computing world by the look of the google searches Everyone would love to be able to turn it off. Why we even have a Num Lock key is beyond me. Who would want to turn their keypad off for heaven's sake? Sort of defeats the purpose of having one doesn't it?

In regard to richc46's "Enable/Disable Numberlock at Login" yes, 2 is the default but there is another setting 1 = Disable Num Lock which is what we would like to be able to do. The registry entry can be changed to 1 but it won't hold - on computer restart it resets itself to 0.

Thanks for input Bill2. I'll check them out.

Join thousands of web sites telling as many as possible. Or just book mark the link and let people know when it comes up somewhere. It will get around eventually.

Also, how do we get this marked as solved??

disable numlock key for good.

Most people overthink this problem. I solved it by taking a pair of needle nose pliers and pulling the actual key off my keyboard. So simple, so fast. Now I cant hit the key if I wanted to. If I do need it at some time, I can pop it back on.
