Have you set the keyboard to the correct language within your operating systems regional and language options in the control panel as sometimes the keys are transposed e.g. shift+2 can produce the @ sign if the language is set to the default American keyboard layout.

Get rid of the french sign and use the question mark and slash sign instead.

Check your regional setting in your control panel. Under default Language Check your Keyboard and make sure US is set as default.

I have a laptop with Swiss French keyboard. Today I have installed windows 7 in English. I need to find the " undescore " because my email address separates my firstname and my lastname with underscore...

Alt 8 is the underscore on the Swiss French keyboard, but I would think if you loaded Windows 7 English it would use the English layout which is "shift" and the key to the right of "0". Worst case, you can use the On-Screen Keyboard which is under Control Panel> Ease of Access Center> "Start On-Screen Keyboard". Once you have it open, right click on it on the "Task bar" and pin it to the task bar for easy future access.
