For those what want to disable the windows key, use this reg. edit.

Key: System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout
Name: Scancode Map
Value: 00000000000000000300000000005BE000005CE000000000

You will probably need to create this value, as it is not present by default. You may wish to cut and paste the value from this page to guard against typos. A reboot may be necessary for it to take effect. Of course, use caution and frequent backups whenever you edit the Registry.
Yeah. I'm lost. What do I do with those spiffy numbers? And what in the f*cking **** caused my key to randomly disable itself anyway? I wasn't doing sh*t, and it just died.

There's no place like /home.
