I second Harry -- and will add that, for reprogramming keys, AutoHotkey
is head-and-shoulders better than AutoIt (the latter, however, being
the superior general-purpose Windows scripting language). My experience
with AutoIt is that reprogrammed keys, a/k/a hotkeys, wreak havoc with
the system -- shifting keys "stick" like crazy -- and the documented
fixes are unreliable. Not to mention that the syntax for setting
hotkeys is byzantine. With AutoHotkey, on the other hand, it's easy --
and, more important, it works.
