My Caps Lock is a Control Key, How Do I Restore to Caps Lock?

In Vista, I had previously made my caps lock function as a control key, the problem is I don't know how to undo the change. I have searched around and most references I find mention changing the ScancodeMap in the registry but this isn't working for me (rebooted after and no change). I even tried the registry files available at http://johnhaller.com/jh/useful_stuff/disable_caps_lock/.

"SharpKeys should allow you to fix that, just map Caps Lock back to itself:

There is also AutoHotkey:

Capslock::Capslock

It seems it was a lower level problem. The key was mapped in the software that came with the keyboard."
