Keyboard problem when installing Office2007

I have a new computer, and this problem has been transferred from my old computer from Microsoft Outlook Express . I have tried a new keyboard but the problem still exists.

When sending emails I have to click on Shift and " to get @ sign.

To get the " I have to click on Shift and @ now in Both computers.

Any suggestions would be very welcome.

    This solution was not successful, unfortunately. I am sorry but this problem is only in the old computer, in the new keyboard and the old one.

    I also had a Spelling poblem which was transferred to my new computer - Spelling in French instead of English.

    I am sorry, as I wrongly submitted the question. This problem is only in my old computer, but when I tried a new keyboard I had the same problem with the @ and with reversing the "

    I had another problem when transferring the data to my new computer.

    The Spell check when I had Windows Office 2007 installed was in French, instead of English.

Transfering my outlook and emails folders from my old desk to my new acer desk top

No because outlook is an installed program in your older computer so you can't transfer install programs from one hard drive to the next.

Transfering mail setup from Windows xp to a windos vista machine with EasySuite

I'm not 100% sure about vista because I hate it but I can help you copy all of your outlook express data to a CD\DVD disk & your address book. Your network settings for express account is a phone call to your ISP.
If vista's explorer is set up like XP you should be able to copy your data into outlook express.
Open all these folders on you XP system.
User name\Application Data\Identities\{xxxxxxx}\Microsoft\Outlook Express
Copy the Outlook Express folder to your CD.
User name\Application Data\Microsoft\Address Book. Copy Address Book folder.
Making sure you have everything.
Open, User name\Local Settings\Application Data\Identities\{xxxxxxx}\Microsoft\Outlook Express
Compair the two Outlook Express folder files. CD will not allow copy of same named folder.
If Vista's lay out is the same as XP than copy Outlook Express folder to Vista.
Suggest you have your current ISP setting /account setup before copying to Vista

Let me know if this works for you!
Good Luck & Kind Regards.
