Win95 key usage

Is there a way to disable the Win95 key?  Are there undocumented uses of this key?
It seems to cause weird problems for some users.

kosta,

This is from Microsoft.

Symptons
If you press a Windows key on the Microsoft Natural Keyboard in an MS-DOS session and then press another key, it may appear that the Windows key is still pressed. For example, if you press and release the Windows key and then press E, Windows Explorer may start. Windows Explorer normally starts only if you press the Windows key and E at the same time.

RESOLUTION
To work around this problem, press the same Windows key that you originally pressed, and then press ESC or click the desktop.

STATUS
Microsoft is researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.

So, to answer your question - no, you can not disable the winkey at this time.
