Looking for a way to run a script OR a utility that will actively block keystrokes on my QWERTY keyboard. Specifically, I want to turn off the Y key, if you're curious. It is a 'problem hotkey' in Pro Tools. Thanks in advance for any clues! :)

More information on why Y is a "problem hotkey" would be welcome. Maybe the problem can be solved differently (for example, by remapping menu shortcuts). – jaume Nov 26 '12 at 16:14
