Is there a program that blocks a certain key from being pushed?

Such as, you were to press ctrl, alt, del, then you make the program block Ctrl, it'd just be alt and del. Get what I'm saying? Well, is there a program that does this, or is there a way you can do it yourself?

Don't take this the wrong way, but your screenname has me wondering why you want to know.

Ease of Access/Alternative Input function built in to windows could alter which keys are used how. For ctrl-alt-del you really need 2 hands but what if you only have 1? Use EoA to set a hotkey in place of the combo.

Well, no. I want to completely disable a key, as in, if I press it on my keyboard, it won't be sent to the computer.


Say, I disable a, so when every I push a, nothing happens. ( I only want to know this because when I use my right shift, not only does it push shift, but it also pushes ctrl, So yeah. I'm trying to get used to left shift, which isn't working out so good. Reduced my typing speed to 120 WPM, when it used to be a good 200/190.

hmmm...it almost sounds like someone previously set right shift as a hot key. Try going into EoA and disabling that and see if it makes a difference.

EoA?

Not too familiar with abbreviations.

It's in Control Panel in VISTA.
