  • Office 2003 Virtual Key problem

    I have a situation with Office 2003 programs where the ? and single quote switch to French accented characters. There are several other keys which have similar actions.

    According to Microsoft, these keys (the non-alphabetic keys on the right side of the keyboard) are "virtual keys". Once the keys have switched, only rebooting the system sets them back to normal.

    The default language was set to English (UK) and we're tried to change it to English (US), hoping that the problem would go away.

    My questions - What's the cause? What's the keystroke combination to cause it and to revert to normal? Finally, I'd like to know how to determine if such a setup is configured?

    Thanks very much,
