Computer is locked in the green symbols of the keyboard

\015 My computer has made it so that certain programs are locked into the green symbols on my keyboard. The only way to stop it is to either restart the computer or the program. Most of the green symbols are accents on letters. (eg. \303\251\303\251\303\251\303\247\303\240\303\247\303\247\302\250\302\250\302\250\302\250) How can i turn this off?\015

Answers :

TO SHUT OFF the green keys, you need to disable the multiligual or French keyboard layouts. For Windows 7:
\015\012
\015\012Click CONTROL PANEL
click CLOCK, LANGUAGE, AND REGION
\015\012
under REGION AND LANGUAGE
\015\012click CHANGE KEYBOARDS... etc.
\015\012
click KEYBOARDS AND LANGUAGES
click CHANGE KEYBOARDS
\015\012
\015\012.......for example, by clicking on a keyboard name (ie. US or and UNITED KINGDOM for example) and then clicking PROPERTIES to the rtight, you can see the actual key layout.......
\015\012
On the list of installed languages, click anything multiligual or French, and then click REMOVE found on the right-hand column
\015\012
click APPLY
click OK
\015\012Then you've removed the French.
\015\012
\015\012Otherwise you have to click the LEFT ALT key and then the LEFT SHIFT key to swich back and forth between the green keys and the white keys.
Its not a virus, my computer is brand new.
