    my insert key is right next to my back space key and I keep hitting the insert button instead. Is there a way to disable the insert button?

    yea, after searching and only finding shareware programs that disable the instert key, I think I'll be doing that.

    I would rather pop a shim in there of some sort, for aesthetic purposes

    anybody got a good item to use to kinda jam between the kb and the key so the key is still on but you can't press it down ... I read about someone doing it someplace but I forgot what they used :(

    strawberry jelly?

    hmmm...i don't know, perhaps take the key off...put glue in the hole and let it dry over night. then put the key cap back on.

    never tried it.
