WoT seems to capture the print screen key GLOBALLY. This means, when WoT is running, it's no longer possible to PrintScreen or Alt-PrintScreen (capture a window), even if WoT is not the foreground application.


How to reproduce:


1) run WoT in windowed or windowed fullscreen mode

2) alt-tab to another window

3) press alt-printscreen to cature that window to the clipboard, then paste it somewhere

4) WITNESS: it didn't capture the window. instead WoT grabbed the print-screen and did it's own WoT screen capture


EXPECTED: WoT to only grab print-screen key while it's in the foreground.

WoT has been hooking that key even while minimized for many patches now (probably since the start), no idea when it started but i experienced it myself some time ago
