I was wondering if anyone knew where the location of the hot key commands were for Windows? Is it like a script saved on the hard drive or is it at the OS level? I wanted to make custom hot keys for my computer. Thanks!

I think you want autohotkey. Will require a little reading of the documentation but it's a very powerful tool.

The most common tool for this is Sharpkeys see this answer for more information.

does Sharpkeys allow rebinding of key commands? I thought it just remapped keys 1:1. –  RJFalconer Jun 19 '11 at 10:19
