I've got a few users whose primary program uses Ctrl+Alt+F1, this wasn't a problem in Windows 7, but now that we've got them on Windows 8 that same shortcut is used by Windows.  I cannot find a way to disable the windows shortcut so their program will work.  Anybody have any ideas?  Thanks.

I guess I didn't look closely enough a the Windows shortcuts.  It ended up being an Intel driver shortcut and not a Windows shortcut.  Problem sovled.
