Certain non standard keys not blocked


Certain keys are not blocked by the application while running.

It seems to be 3 keys on the keyboard I use, I thought it was windows key shortcuts initially but after regression testing found that it was in fact 3 other keys. I've attached a picture of the keyboard showing which 3 keys.

These keys launch the default Email client, the default webbrowser and windows calculator.

The keyboard in question is Microsoft Wireless Laser 6000 v2

I've added a timer that will put the window in the foreground. I can't prevent these keys, but I can hide the apps they launch.

Weird...I have that keyboard. I'll take a look at it. Thanks!

Turns out those buttons aren't really buttons, but actually communication with the custom keyboard driver. I'm looking into it.
