I'm not sure if this is possible, but is there a way to disable the Windows key so they it won't open start or the like, but the computer can still see the key itself is being pressed? I want to use the key as my push-to-talk for voice programs, and disabling it the way others have suggested in the registry just seems to make the computer stop seeing the key entirely, so it doesn't work as PTT key.
Nevermind, discovered that Direct Input in Ventrilo is apparently the equivalent of the suppress option in Mumble.

ETA: Alternatively, I have a mouse that came with two additional buttons that act as back/forward shortcuts. Using one of those may be convenient, but again, I'm not sure how I'd go about it. The configurable button pane in the mouse properties doesn't give an option to disable the buttons, just assign different functions, and if I uninstall the software, then, again, the computer just stops seeing the clicks entirely.
