CTRL-Alt-C Trying to Shutdown Windows 7

I just learnt that I’m able to copy/paste nodes in Treepad Plus, so I thought I’d give it a go. I hit CTRL-Alt-C, and…

Everything closed, and Windows tried to shut down!

Another guy had a similar issue here.

I suspected another app, so I started clicking through my System Tray. The first one I came to, WinSplit Revolution, was the culprit:

Changing this to another hotkey, solved the problem.

    Thank you! One less problem to worry about. The shutdown is the worst part but i think the developer took “Close all windows” one step to far

      I agree, gee whiz! I’m mistook one of my Auto Hot Key shortcuts to be Ctrl+Alt+C and all my windows shut down :/
      I’m thankful for this article though

    You’re a hero!
    I was trying for several hours to solve this issue finally arriving here.
    Had been plagued for many months by having to copy/paste [ ] countless times each day while studying programming.
    Thank you!

    THANK YOU! That solved it! It was going to take me hours to figure this out. Glad this was the forth search result in my Yahoo! Search.

    My thanks as well. Once I figured Alt-Ctrl-C was the problem, your entry solved it immediately
