Windows 7: Annoying Excel Copy/Paste Problem

Annoying Excel Copy/Paste Problem

When I copy and paste a cell under Excel 2010 I get a small 'Ctrl' message below and to the right of the target cell -- the one I am pasting to. The message's drop down list contains all of the paste functions. The only way I can clear the message is to use ESC or copy another cell.

I've lived with this for a couple of years now and it finally has begun to irritate me.

Is there any way I can prevent the little message from appearing?

Thank you.
