F2 / F3 Keys don't produce desired result

Our company uses a piece of software that is unique to the insurance industry (Future Audit 3) and it is database driven.  I have an employee using a Dell Netbook with Windows 7.  Within the worksheet it says to press F2 to select Principal and F3 to Add or Edit Job duties.  However, when she presses F2 it pops up "Enable Wireless LAN?" and F3 shows the Battery Meter.  I can log in with LogMeIn and send F2 and F3 and it works like the worksheet intended.  Is there any way to change the association?

try this out on their laptop:

As the system in booting hit F2 to go to Setup.  From there click 'System Configuration' then 'Function Key Behavior'.  Switch to 'Fuction Key First' then hit the 'Apply' box, then 'Exit'.  Now the function keys will work normaly and you can hold 'Fn' to use the multimedia fuctions

My user says there is no setup option in the F2 menu during reboot.  Is there another way to get to it?

Free Tool: Port Scanner

Check which ports are open to the outside world. Helps make sure that your firewall rules are working as intended.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

Thank you, worked perfectly - the Windows 7 setup menus have changed a bit (for instance, there is no 'Apply' it's "Save and Exit" by hitting F10, at least according to the employee.)  Thanks!
