Hi,
I play UT99 and have a problem with the windows hotkeys:
windowskey(startmenu) and Alt+spacebar combination.
Pressing windowskey accidentaly minimizes UT (this is a bad thing in a
frantic shootout).
Pressing alt+space ingame freezes UT to show a menu. (also bad)
I have used 2 aplications to solve this problem: "I hate this key"
http://www.bytegems.com/ihatethiskey.shtml and autohotkey (with a special
script to disable alt+space combination.) http://www.autohotkey.com/
Running these apps together seems to wreck my windows after a while
(keyboard stops to function properly and I have to reboot) I suspect its
autohotkey.
Did anyone else encounter this problem and maybe solved it?
I triend to get SecureDesktop or Coldkey http://www.visualautomation.com/
wich probably could solve it.
But its too expensive for me ($195!!).
Any help is appreciated.

Remap the keys to something harmless/useful using the above.

Thanks for your help.
I figured out an autohotkey script that works and doesn't disrupt my system.
http://www.autohotkey.com/
Its this:

$!Space::
SetTitleMatchMode, 2
IfWinActive, - Unreal Tournament, , Return
Send, !
return

But thanks anyway!.
