Panasonic CF-19 brightness On Screen Display keeps coming up on startup

I have a Panasonic CF-19 that decided to come up with the OSD allowing for the changing of the brightness. I can remove it by Function F1 or F2 (at least I THINK it was the function button...I can't remember right now). Anyway, even though it goes away, if I restart the computer, it comes back again. I am looking to permanently resolve this issue, and any help would be greatly appreciated.

Look for a Hotkey driver, On screen driver or the like from Panasonic. On a Lenovo ThinkPad, it is the Hotkey driver.

Assuming you can find it:  

(a) Upgrade it. There is a probably a driver upgrade available.
(b) Uninstall it and do not use it. This may NOT be satisfactory overall.

The icon should disappear in 10 seconds or so.

Make sure that it is not in the settings or is not dropped into the start up menu to appear on login.

If you logoff/logon, same behavior?

Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Power Options, click "Change plan settings"
Click "Change advanced power settings."
Scroll down to Display, then find "Enable adaptive brightness"
Switch it off.

We have 2 of these units. Only one appears to be exhibiting the issue and they are both the same hardware and rev level. I keep them updated with the same versions of software, etc.
I tried Michael's adjustment of the adaptive brightness, but unfortunately, that didn't help my situation, thanks anyway.
My next step will be to stop down there and make sure it's not a physical keyboard issue or a BIOS issue.
It does not appear to be anything in the startup menu
On restarts, it doesn't seem to show up, but on complete shut downs and start ups, it does.
As to upgrading the driver, that's another thing I will be looking at...thanks for the ideas. I will let you know what it is, but it may take me a bit of time to get down there.
