AltGr works like ctrl


I just started using win7 and I ran into a strange problem. In some programs like in Dark Basic and in WOW the AtlGr works like ctrl. In WOW when I try to write @ I press altgr + v and it writes @ and pastes the info on the clipboard while in Dark Basic it works like ctrl.

What could be the problem?
