    compaq presario laptop with xp home when i am using firefox the help screen will open on its own if you close it it will reopen. If using ie it's help screen will also open on it's own somtimes as many as 40 windows and sometimes windows help will open when running firefox. when turning on sounds like a bell ringing for a few seconds and a whte bar goes across the screen. it then starts to load. Any ideas thanks

    Sounds like sticky keys. F1 brings up the help screen for any application. Check to make sure that your F1 key is not stuck.
