Windows 7: Hotkey not working after updates

Hotkey not working after updates

Hi there

I'm a user of Gadwin Printscreen which I have been using for years, I have been using it all week normally i just start the program, hit PrtScn key and it brings up a dialogue allowing me to take snapshots but this time it didn't.

I have tried installing a later version the hotkey does not work on this either, so I put on an earlier image (made last week) I had and the hotkey worked fine, ran windows update, and it stopped working.

Is there any way I can check which program is using which hotkeys ?

Andy :)
