Hello Win7usr2011 and welcome to Seven Forums.

Do you have a Restore Point that was created before the problems began?

Go to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Regions and Language\Keyboards and Language\Change Keyboards, what is the language set to? If not what you want, use the drop-down menu and change it.

Yeah I tried all of that. I just went out and bought a new wired kb and it is working perfectly now. So I think that it was just my old kb's time. I had had it for five years or so of heaving WoW use...so it was just worn out I guess. Plus I could barely see the letters anymore and I'd taken it apart to wash it and reassembled it numerous times. It's going to the graveyard.

Thanks a lot for everyone's thoughts though. I really appreciate it that you guys took time out of your day to try and help me.

Ahh, in post 6 and 7 I thought you meant the wired KB was good.

Anyhoo, glad you have it fixed!
