    It's amazing how people still don't understand the simplicity of a search engine:
    http://www.google.com/search?client=...utf-8&oe=utf-8

    EDIT: That will disable all usage of the windows key... I'm 99% sure you can't just disable one combination unless you have a keylogger running in the background.

    I've searched over the Internet and tried a couple of solutions, from writing regini scripts to using freeware applications but that didn't worked or only win key was disabled (popping up start menu) but combinations such as winkey+U worked...!?! I use wi XP professional...
