Ok, I think the title explains this one.

I want to disable the [CMD]+[ESC] keyboard shortcut key for Frontrow.

It annoys the hell outta me, as I am a Mad [CMD]+[TAB] user, and ALWAYS hit the Esc button to cancel it.

Suggestions are welcome.

System Prefs --> Keyboard and Mouse --> Keyboard Shortcuts --> Untick "Hide and Show Front Row"

You're welcome?

Danm that was quick.

Now, why didn't I think of that. :)

Thanks :)

I usually turn off all the Universal Access ones anyway, cos I don't need them, and they drive me mad.

I like the invert one.
It's great on a black website, or even white, where the foreground and background colours are too close.
Just invert the page.

You hit the escape key to get out of :cmd:-tab? Why not just release the command key? Is this a press-and-hold both keys affair, or do you press and hold the :cmd: key and tap the tab key? The first one would warrant the use of the escape key, but the other way... Somehow the problem at hand doesn't make sense to me.

If you release CMD with another app's icon highlighted it will switch to that app.
I think the OP is using ESC to cleanly exit without switching app.

It's the "oops - I pressed CMD+TAB" scenario.

Sometimes you start to do a Cmd+Tab manoeuvre, and then something happens in a different app, and you want to cancel it. Esc comes in handy then. In fact, Esc comes in handy if you want to "pull out" of many OSX "manoeuvres". Try dragging an icon off the dock, keeping the mouse held down, and then pressing Esc. The icon pops back. It's a way of telling OSX "I no longer want to do this operation".

Ah, I get you, I just use the mouse to get it back. Lol.

and this is the scientific explication :)
