Vim, vi and nano editor shows help.txt automatically

Hi,

Whenever i try to open a file in any editor like vi, vim and nano i get this help.txt showing up in split screen without any key being pressed. This continues to pop up even when i close the help.txt. This behavior happens only when i am connected via putty. Is there a fix to this issue?

Regards,
Sai

Hi Sunil,

which OS and which release are you using?

Could you paste the contents of the following files?
Code:
~/.vimrc
/usr/share/vim/vimrc
/etc/vimrc
