Without being able to offer a solution, I would like to point out that 
this is because the numpad enter key evaluates the cell contents in 
Mathematica (just like shift+enter).  It is possible to remove this 
function of the keypad enter key by editing C:\Program Files\Wolfram 
(on non-Windows platforms the path is slightly different), but if you 
choose to do this, be very careful, back up the file before editing, and 
do not create any extra .tr files in those directories.
