Running FileSeek on Win+F

Is there a way to define Win+F to run FileSeek in Windows 7? I have uninstalled Windows Search, but have not been able to define FileSeek as Win+F. If I hit Win+F, Windows tells me, "There is no program associated to perform the requested action" if I hit Win+F, but it will not allow me to associate Win+F with FileSeek, and I do not see a "search" or "find" protocol listed under Control Panel/Default Programs.

How can I associate "search" with FileSeek, or at least redefine the Win+F hotkey? Anyone know? I am perfectly happy to edit the registry if necessary.

I don't think this is possible, but I've posted this as a question on Super User:

You can follow along if you'd like, but it doesn't look hopeful so far.

I figured it out, actually. I just created a AutoHotkey script to run FileSeek on Win+F. Works fine.
