Access Helps shows up when I press F1 on a menu option

P: n/a

I have a database (Access 2003) where I put in my help file (help.chm) and
set all the context IDs. When I press F1 on a form, I get the correct help
page for that form. This is all working as expected.

However, when I click a menu option and it opens and displays all its options
down the screen, if I click F1 at that point, the standard Access help window
appears on the far right of the screen. So I went into every menu option and
entered my help file (help.chm) into every help file property and set the
context ID to 0 for each menu item as well. I thought by setting it to zero,
no help file would be shown. Despite this, the Access help still appears when
I click F1 when a menu is open or when a shortcut menu is displayed on the
screen. All the menus are custom made.

Is this normal Access behahivour? Is there a way to stop the Access help
system showing at all?
