People give the wrong advice to this problem all the time. This is how you fix it...you ready?

PRESS SHIFT AND CONTROL AT THE SAME TIME.
Fixed. :)

You may also press ctrl+shift+shift. This works for my Dell laptop.

I had the same problem with my Dell. There was a (default) hotkey combo set when I installed Windows 7. I disabled it by going to

Control Panel -> Region and Language -> Keyboards and Languages

click on Change Keyboards...

select the Advanced Key Settings tab

You can set or disable the hotkeys here.
