Ctrl-space toggle strange behaviour

By ronnymfho ·
I found this happen on almost all English WinXP, and also Chin WinXP with IE7 installed...

Normal situation:
In most applications(such as Word, notepad and other apps), pressing ctrl-space will toggle between English and Chinese(or other language) input method.

After installing IE7:
Pressing ctrl-space doesn't work. It seems that "ctrl" is not pressed and return in a space only. When the "En" language bar icon is pressed, Chinese(or other language) method can be selected. After that, ctrl-space can toggle it on/off again.
This happens also in Outlook and Outlook Express, but not in MS Office or other appps.
If the IE7 windows is closed, ctrl-space toggle will return to its "non-function" situation until clicking the "En" icon for selecting.

I searched the internet for quite a long time but cannot find any solution.
