CTRL-ALT-Left/Right not working

Hey.

I'm on Windows XP and CTRL-ALT-Left and -Right aren't working.

They haven't been changed in the keymap, and the back and forward buttons still display these as the shortcuts.

I have WinAmp installed, which has Global Hotkeys for those combinations by default, but I removed those as soon as I installed it, though I suppose they could still be lying around in the repository (if that's where these things are recorded).

Anyone got any idea what's wrong or how to fix it?

The "usual suspects" are display drivers (ATI mostly) and instant messaging programs (MSN,
ICQ). Check if you've got some of these that might be stealing the shortcuts.

Well, my graphics driver didn't have those hotkeys defined, only CTRL-ALT-F11 and -F12, but I disabled the "Enable Hotkeys" checkbox anyway and that fixed it.

Thanks!
