Though Windows Vista has multilingual capabilities, you cannot change the language in
which the toolbars,etc are displayed. If you have a French user interface
then nothing you do will turn it into English. Your only option is to buy an
English version of Vista and then do a clean install.

your keyboard layout is wrong. what country are you? the default layout is US. some use UK layouts.

Depending on where the laptop was made, your keyboard layout will be different. I recommend try changing it to US,
go to start->control panel->switch to classic view(if it isn't already, else skip this step)->regional and language options->languages->details->(change your keyboard to US layout. If you can't see the option, go to "add..." and add a input language (english?) and keyboard layout)

Good Luck! if you are still struggling, just shout! I'll be here
