Windows 7: Is there a way of totally disabling F1 hotkey ?

Is there a way of totally disabling F1 hotkey ?

I find myself never referring to the Windows helper in case I have a problem, like I'm doing now. Microsoft's help is a bit too 'conservative' imo, and thus I'd like to disable it from popping up every time F1 is pressed.

Is there a way to do that ?


Thanks in advance

P.S. searching for anything containing 'F1' is useless since it ignores short terms of the like (it seems to behave so here at least).
