    A couple of days ago my favourite windows hotkey stopped working:

    windows + e for explorer

    Actually none of them work now.

    Extensive net searching has not helped! Can anyone help?

    I'm running Vista 64 Ultimate.

    gpedit.msc
    User Configuration --- Administrative templates\Windows Components\Windows Explorer

    Double click "Turn off Windows +X hotkeys" and set it to "Not Configured"

    If already set to "not configured" then set it to disabled and reboot.

    Some software can change this so...installed anything new?
