Key left to backspace makes ´´ sign

Hi everybody,

my key left to backspace makes this sign ´´ , and i use that button for letters like í , ó , ý , ú , é , cause i am Faroese.

It is suppose to do nothing with one click, and add this character ´ when i type i , o , u , and so on, and add it on top on the letters.

My troubleshooting is, i have set regional settings all to Faroese, and the problem persists, but if i change it to Danish, it works, but then i can´t make the letter " ð " which we use alot here. The problem started (I think) when i installed Office 2010. I have uninstalled it, but problem is still here. When i created a new user, then everything works like a charm, but i have so many programs and plugins installed, that it would take me nearly 2 days to complete a setup for a new user. Each plugin has to go through a licence thingy, and blah blah. Yes, they are all legit.

I can also see that language toolbar when i had 2 different keyboards set. It saw that it changes when i go through different windows, but this is not the case now, because i have only one language set, and that is Faroese.

I looked also into the registry, and tried to compare values like:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Keyboard Layout\Preload
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Keyboard
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\International

HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Keyboard\

the value here: InitialKeyboardIndicators is set to 2147483648 . Not sure what this means.

Looking forward to read comments :)

It was a bloody trojan :( . Scanned with Microsoft Security Essentials, fpund nothing, but Malwarebytes found 3 trojans, multiple stolen data, and others. Hooray for MB :)

Having another issue :( , popping sound, on even iTunes, youtube, Cubase....erverywhere i play sound :( , had it before, but upgrading displaydrivers made it go away, but not this time , nor upgrading sound drivers fixed that :( .

Maybe ill post another thread regarding that. Thanks for you feedback :)
