Windows 7: "Failure to register import hotkey....."

"Failure to register import hotkey....."

Hello !
So I'm test-driving this program that I like a lot, but every time I fire it up it throws an error message, something to the effect of

"Failure to register import hotkey: Hotkey is already registered".

The hotkey the app is referencing is 'Windows key + V'.
So my question to this group is: Is there some solid little program out there that I could install then run which would tell me which of the 200 programs installed on this box happen to own that keystroke combination?
Thanks much for your time [:-{

Windows 7 Ultimate (64 bit)

Is this the very first time you have installed this software on your system?
Registry keys are unique and are never used by two different software provider.
I would run Ccleaner and do a registry clean and see what happens.

Let us know the outcome.

Magnifier hotkey changed taskbar "edge"
Hey, So, I was reading about hotkeys and tried "win+plus button" that was supposed to zoom in. It opened up the magnifier application, but it also seems to have changed the taskbar 'edge.' What I mean by that is that when I maximize a window it now expands to the whole screen, going under the...
