Weird keyboard problem...

Hi, I guess I should just go straight to the point:
When I press the key posted below (apostrophe & quotation mark) it writes.. um the thing twice! It's so hard to explain.

I want to write ' , but i get '' (double ')
I want to write " , but i get "" (double ")

I write it correctly because I just delete the previous but this is DAMN annoying. The keyboard needs no drivers it's somekinda.. Huyndai office keyboard. I didn't have this problem in Vista. What's weird is that it does the "doubling" thing whenever I write on the net, in my browser, etc. , but it does not have such behaviour in Notepad, Word or other windows places you can write stuff in... Can't be Opera bug because Chrome and IE do the same. What's even WEIRDER is that my multimedia keys (Play,Stop,Pause Vol UP, Vol DOWN etc.) were recognized by WMP12 and the other applications, but now this has appeared. I haven't tried anything yet, so got any ideas? This really SU><!

I had same problem with the keyboard. You have US International layout installed. To deactivate it, go to control panel | region and language | change display language | change keyboards and add US keyboard. To be sure it will remain, you can delete US International keyboard

It... refuses to do that. When I mark the US-International keyboard the remove button stays inactive...
Question - At the PC stores, can we already see stickers "Designed for Win7"? I want to buy a new keyboard, (this one sucks anyway) and I want to make sure it's the PRO, lots of multimedia buttons, a scroll button on the side daming rubber on the WASD... About 40$ should be enough, right??? Also It's gonna be a Microsoft keyboard for sure... 4 days untill I finish school and get those 50 bucks from my grandparents, till then give me your advice! What should I buy?
