Remap Caps Lock key to Ctrl in Windows 7

I love having Control on the home row. To turn your (frankly useless and annoying) caps lock key into the ctrl key, browse to this key in regedit:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlKeyboard Layout

Set it to this Hex code:

00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,02,00,00,00,1d,00,3a,00,00,00,00,00

OR use the registry modification files they made here:

(look for the Download Keyboard Mappings Registry Tweaks link)
