There are a bunch of New File wizards with the Help target enabled. We've determined that there is no need for context-sensitive help for these wizards (the user only sets an arbitrary file name and project folder). See discussion in Issue 205440. 
1. Could you please disable these help buttons?
2. I assume that every time a developer creates a new New File wizard, he uses a template, and this template has help target enabled. Could someone make sure this help is disabled in the template? If a developer heavily modifies the template, to the point that it requires user help topic, that particular wizard should have a unique help target.
