Disable the floating help window

In Office 2000 the built-in help window has an annoying habit of trying to "help" you by floating back and forth on the screen while you work. To disable this behavior you can make a change to the Registry:

Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\9.0\Common\Help\Viewer
Change the value for the key IsFloating to 1.
If the key IsFloating doesn't exist you can add it your self, this is a DWORD value. 

Note! Don't try to edit any Registry settings if you don't know what you are doing. If you do anything wrong you might have to re-install the computers operating system and other software.
