Hmm.. Very strange problem

Have you tried reinstalling the driver for the keyboard ?

You donot have to repair IE but just try if that would solve the problem in IE

Right-click and select "uninstall"

This could also be a Function Keymap. This happens on laptops frequently when users unwittingly press the Fn key (or off-color special key) that activates the alternate keyboard mapping so that there is a 10-key numeric set avaialble.

If you examine the printing on the keys on the keyboard, are there different letters/number printed on the side of the keys themselves? If so, look at the color of the printed characters and then look for the button (usually down on the lower left side) of the keyboard that matches the color of the offset key labels and press it.

If the problem actually is only happening in MS Office products, you might take a look at what language set your software is set to use. Often times the languages re-map the keys (like if you set your keyboard for "English UK" as opposed to "English US" -- pressing the '$' you'll get a crazy-looking 'L' used to denote pounds sterling.

Lastly, go to your control panel, click KEYBOARD, then click the Input Locales tab, then see what Input language you're set to (change it if it's not English, United States, then click properties. Make sure it's set to "US."

Cheers
