Windows help menus popping up

I have a computer running Windows 7 Business.  Upon launching multiple applications, the help menus for those applications just randomly pup up like you have opened them.  I have seen it in Internet Explorer 9 and Outlook 2007.

Check you F1 key. That is the shortcut for Help in both programs.  It is probably stuck. Or try another keyboard.

I looked at the keyboard.  It is a Logitech wireless, and it is relatively new.  i pressed the F1 key a couple of times, and it did not feel stuck or loose.  I did download the newest setpoint software and drivers for it.  I will watch it today and see what happens.  This is on one of the owners computers, so she is freaking out about it.

Check batteries. Try a different keyboard.

It seems that updating the setpoint software solved the problem.
