    Parentheses Problem (6.0.2900......)

    Can anyone assist me. I have just replaced my old Laptop with a new Acer. Using IE, when I type words into a search window and use the parentheses key ("), the first time I press the key nothing shows until the next keypress. Sometimes nothing shows until I finish typing the phrase I want and then press the closing parentheses. Then two parenthese appear, often in the wrong place!! Grrr! This is like an "Autocorrect" type of function, but I can find no setting in IE to stop this happening. Any Ideas out there?

    I suspect this problem occurs in all applications. Assuming that you have Windows XP:
    - Select Start | Control Panel.
    - Open Date, Time, Language, and Regional Options
    - Open Regional and Language Options.
    - Activate the Languages tab.
    - Click Details; this opens the Text Services and Input Languages dialog.
    - If you see US (International), your keyboard has been set up for easy entry of characters with accents, for example ' followed by e will result in

    Thanks, Hans, that seems to have fixed the problem. Jeez, I hate it when you buy a computer and they've already set it up and installed things the way they want.....
