Make sure the taskbar is unlocked before trying to disable the sticky keys as stated in the previous post.

I do not know if this works in Vista, but in XP to get rid of Sticky Keys press both Shift keys at the same time.

See if this microsoft website will help.

I would think twice before doing the below to kill sticky keys simply because there are viruses that use a vunerability in the sticky keys to remote control the computer. If you have a virus that does this it may stop the system from booting.

One cannot remove/disable sticky keys completely, but only disable the hotkey activation of sticky keys.

The sticky keys feature is not used by many, but for those who play games and have assigned SHIFT or CTRL for a certain action in the game might get annoyed by the Sticky Keys configuration screen. (Especially if having uninstalled the accessibility options so one cannot turn off the activation of Sticky Keys via the user interface).

Change this registry key to disable the hotkey activation (FKF_HOTKEYACTIVE) of sticky keys:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER \Control Panel \Accessibility \StickyKeys]
Flags = "506" (Default = "510")

Note one can completely disable accessibility options by renaming/deleting the registry-node Accessibility ( above)
