How to remap complex key shortcuts (alt+key into different key)

Hello.
I'm desperately looking how to remap my keyboard shortcuts into different keys. Normal remapping is fine, but I have ThinkPad external USB keyboard now and there are some keys that simulates alt+left arrow and alt+right arrow. Those keys are around arrows (for browser back and forward navigation) and I'd like to have them as page up and page down.
This was no problem with ThinkPad itself where those keys are WWW_BACK and WWW_FORWARD. But here, it is alt+left and alt+right.

*****
Can I remap alt+left key to page up functionality etc.?
*****

Common remapping methos is single key registry tweak. This won't work. Any ideas?

Thanks a lot,

fix_capslock.php is also not helping, I've tried already a KeyTweak application - which is a frontend to that registry settings. It does remap whole keys, not alt+key as far as I know.

I'll try AutoHotKey...
