One option is to disable the Intel(R) HD Graphics Control Panel Service altogether. Or don't have it be started automatically. See more info here: – AlikElzin-kilaka Aug 1 '15 at 15:02

The screen orientation keys are probably provided and controlled by the Intel HD driver (it's been a standard feature of Intel video drivers for years now).

Use the Intel HD utility to disable them:

One can easily open this utility window through the hotkey Ctrl+Alt+F12 – Yamaneko Oct 29 '13 at 21:43
