Customizing keyboard button layout in Win7

I am using an eMachine KB-9908 PS/2 keyboard. it has an INTERNET and EMAIL button that I would like to remap to Media player and COD 2. I cannot find the drivers on any website, and I really dont like having to suscribe to $40 software for one-time use. is there a way to navigate through windows .cfg files or the device manager? does anyone else have this problem, and if so, can were you able to fix it?

I don't have your keyboard but it should be about the same. Start and type in search keyboard. Their might be a option to set up your keyboard accessory buttons. If that doesn't work I have no idea.
