Windows 7: Disabling/ editing a hotkey shortcut

Disabling/ editing a hotkey shortcut

Here's my issue:

I apparently set up my screenshots to take with the hit of s for easy access while playing games. The problem is now everything I hit s, it takes a screenshot. I've spend countless hours searching on the net for a solution so I thought I'd come here to see if someone has had a similar problem. Is there a location I can find where I can edit and or disable all hot key commands? Thank you.

Thanks for the reply. I tried option 1 to no avail. I currently have home premium so the local group policy editor is not available to me.

Is there somewhere else I'm possibly overlooking? I know the original shortcut key was not "s" for a screenshot, I'm pretty sure I made it so through an option somewhere. The problem is I cannot figure out how to get back to that option screen to disable or change the screenshot to a key I wouldn't use typing regularly, as I don't need thousands of screenshots per week. Any other ideas would be great.

Is there a way of totally disabling F1 hotkey ?
I find myself never referring to the Windows helper in case I have a problem, like I'm doing now. Microsoft's help is a bit too 'conservative' imo, and thus I'd like to disable it from popping up every time F1 is pressed. Is there a way to do that ? Thanks in advance P.S. searching for...
