There is a webapp which uses Java & ActiveX and it gladly accepts most keyboard shortcuts, but IE will intercept certain ones like F3 and Ctrl+Shift+F.

Can IE keyboard shortcuts be changed or disabled in some setting or file somewhere?

In the JQuery hotkeys docs the venerable John Resig states that IE will, "let you handle built-in short-cuts, but will add their functionality after your code has executed."

Could the app be receiving the keystrokes in addition to IE?

This may be true for JQuery stuff, but regular HTML accesskeys will not be executed if they match a shortcut in IE. For example, alt-d selects the address bar, so you can't use accesskey='d' for any HTML form buttons or links. – NReilingh Jun 29 '12 at 14:06
