First of all, thanks to jaxisland for his help with my earlier problem.

Now my friend has a problem with her keyboard. It seems to have set its own shortcuts that get in the way of other processes.

The right ctrl button on my keyboard opens up my internet browser, the right alt key opens my calculator, The - button on the number pad makes my computer go to sleep, the enter button on the number pad turns num lock on/off, my num lock button opens wmp.... I think that's it. Any ideas what's wrong?


Any idea what could cause this? Or if it's some annoying windows setting, any idea how to turn it off?

She's running Windows XP (SP2, of course)
The keyboard is a Dell keyboard from Microsoft.

Thanks again!

The last time I came across one of these that wasn't down to a programmed shortcut key [you did check for these and accessability settings first?] it was down to an ASUS I panel. Other 5.25" programmable front panels could presumably act the same way...
