Windows 7: Microsoft Word and the keyboard switch to French

Microsoft Word and the keyboard switch to French

My office computer runs Vista and sometimes the keyboard language switches over to French. The strange thing is that the keyboard is only in French within Microsoft Word. In any other program (Chrome, Excel, Notepad...), it's still in good ol' English. Also, the selected language at the bottom in Word is still English, so it's still spell checking the right language. Once I restart Word, it goes back to English. There must be a sequence of keys I'm hitting that switches it to French. Or...?

Yes.

Standard QWERTY English layout. (Is this what you were asking?)

Eng-us. I can switch this to eng-canada after the problem occurs and the keyboard stays in French.

No possible explanations? Maybe I should go to a Vista forum... :)

Actually, it's not really annoying or anything. It only happens a couple times a week, and a quick save and restart of Word fixes it. I am just curious.
