This should work:
   1. Download and install SharpKeys.
   2. Run SharpKeys and click the “Add” button.
   3. In the “From key” column click “Type Key” and press the Apple key. Click “OK.”
   4. In the “To key” column click “Type Key” and press your left ctrl key. Click “OK.”
   5. Click “OK” to dismiss the key mapping menu.
   6. Click “Write to Registry” and reboot your Mac.

Or you can set your ctrl key to behave like the Apple  key in OS X by going Settings -> Keyboard -> Modifier Keys : then swap “Control” and “Command” key functions in the drop down, and click “OK.”

You likely need to reinstall the Bootcamp drivers in windows 7, they are located on the OS X install DVD. There will be a keyboard utility that will help you map keys.
