    apaostrophe becomes a french E with an accent over it

    Suddenly today, any time I type an apostrophe key, this is what happens:


    Any idea why Hah, I see it also happens with Question Mark key. Happens in email typing, Notepad, anywhere.

    This happens with both an external keyboard and the laptop keyboard.

    edit: resolved: things went back to normal after reboot. No idea what happened.
