Acer Laptop 'Euro' kep not mapped..

A friend has an Acer 5920 laptop running Vista Home Premium.

There is a seperate key for the ¬  (Euro) sign but it has stopped working.

I think her son recently removed a lot tof the Bloatware from the machine - I wonder if he also accidentally removed some utility that mapped the keys?

Any ideas please.

On Acers you're right there is a configuration file called by Launch Manager that maps the specific Euro key.  I guess this was a victim of the "clean up"

Download the file from Acer support here:

Check the regional settings still identify the machine as in a "Euro" zone it may have been set back to the default US setup. As you know the Euro is on "Alt Gr+4" or "Windows Key+4" so make sure both of the "Alt-option" keys are working. Some applications are not "Euro-friendly" so if they are working on line some text boxes will not recognise the Euro character (see the E-E Rich Text editor above as an example!!)
