Frequent occurrence of windows Help bar

  ChandaniSen 09:38 14 Aug 2014

Whenever I am clicking any icon [ be it internet, be it start menu, be it task manager, control panel.. anything] windows help bar related to that particular icon is occurring. It can not be closed until the laptop is turned off. I am using Compaq 610 for more than four years, and never faced such problem. Please help me with some measure to stop automatic occurrence of help window.

A few possible reasons

  1. caused by spyware - scan for virus and malware

  2. F1 key stuck or F1 key is in sticky keys

  3. old software recently installed? and windows is looking for a none existant help file for it.

  4. USB problem - uninstll all USB devices in device manager and reboot let windows reinstall the usb devices.
