Windows hotkey reacting very slowly

I've been searching for a solution to this problem for a while. When I press Window Key-E to bring up Explorer, it takes a few seconds for Explorer to come up. Every other computer I try this on it brings it up instantaneously. Since I use this many many times a day, this is an inconvenience. This only happens with keyboard shortcuts, because if I click on an icon for Explorer, it comes up instantaneously. If I set a keyboard shortcut for an icon and use the keyboard shortcut, its slow.

This problem came up when I started from scratch on a slightly faster PC and reinstalled everything that was on the original PC. The only difference in software is that I installed Visual Studio .Net 2003 and MS SQL Server (I latered uninstalled SQL Server). The machine is a P3-733 w/ 512 MB RDRAM running Win2k SP4. I have a Microsoft Natural Keyboard Pro and use the latest Intelitype software.

My only guess is that the Intelitype software is causing some kind of problem. I noticed that the extra keys on my keyboard don't work correctly all the time either. For example, the Play/Pause button sometimes takes several seconds to pause the CD, unless I have switched to the CD player recently. This is really annoying when someone comes to talk to me, and my music doesn't pause in time.

If anyone knows anything about this, let me know. I'm going to try a different keyboard and maybe uninstalling Intelitype to see if it makes a difference.
