Unwanted keyboard shortcut with dual monitors

By jfuller05 ·
Problem:
I have a computer setup with dual monitors (desktop extended). When I have a window open, e.g., Microsoft Word 2007, after I type "1" on the keyboard, the Word Window and mouse relocate to the second monitor. When I type "2" the Word window and mouse relocate to the main monitor. In the word document, 1 and 2 are typed in the document, but pushing the keys still move the window and mouse to the opposing monitor.
I checked the keyboard settings within Windows and found that sticky keys and such are not enabled. The keyboard has no such features to enable. I also checked the display setup in display properties and found nothing that would indicate such a setup. Google searches return nothing related to my problem.

What I do know:
-The rest of the numbers on the keyboard work fine. Pressing 1 and 2 on the number pad at the far right of the keyboard do not transfer the active window to the second monitor. Those keys work fine.

-The type of window does not matter. Using notepad, word, excel, internet explorer, sticky notes; all of those windows would transfer to the opposing monitor when I push 1 and 2.

Setup:
Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
Dual-Monitor
Wireless Keyboard and mouse

Are you using anything for your monitors for wallpapers? Something along the lines of UltraMon or anything similar? These programs will have shortcut keys to switch active windows to other monitors.

I was wondering if you came up with a solution. My new machine has begun doing the same thing.
