pop up indicator

Everytime I select the caps lock key a little pop up indicator flashes
on telling me that i'm in either upper or lower case - its driving me mad.

Same for the num lock key!! Yes I do have a wireless keyboard and mouse. But when this pop up indicator comes on its minimezes any programs I am working in!
How do i turn it off???

What keyboard do you have? I suspect that it is it's driver, rather than anything in W7. When I cap lock or unlock, I get large green heads up on the screen, but it is not a popup, and it doesn't effect other programs.
