Windows 7: After today's windows updates, my hotkeys are not working

After today's windows updates, my hotkeys are not working

Above says after when.

Basically, i used to be able to use my fast forward, pause/play, stop, and volume control buttons to control my itunes and the volume.

now, the volume control does not show the bar on the screen that shows what level the volume is at when it's changing volume, and my pause/play, fast forward, rewind, and stop buttons only work when itunes is the main window.

it used to control itunes even when itunes was in the background :/

please help!

Run the restore point the update made. It does that so you can back off changes.
Press Winkey +Pause. Click System Protection. Press the System Restore Button.
Choose the restore point made by the update. If there is more than one restore point made just before the updates, choose the first restore point made by an update. That should back off all changes.

nah it's fine, i just restarted the computer one more time after the updates had been applied (like after the recommended restart) and everything was fine.

thank you for replying though!
