XP's unexpected surprises

A friend of mine was doing remote assistance via msn, helping me solve a problem on my laptop. And then after that, the laptop went haywire. All the text i type in msn, outlook, ms word etc comes out garbled. There is no coherent word that can be typed,, everything typed comes out like ...
D$%$#dsfhW@RFDWSFE@yj#@#sed%$
etc
I have winxp home edition. Please help!!!!!!
Thanks in advance

Don't trust your friend. He's a dirty guy.

Another piece of advice, keep your girl away from him. :-)

Use the mouse to check the KeyBoard and the Region and Language settings in Control Panel

And he's not your friend ...

Of course a surprise can be expected.  When I installed XP SP2 I expected some surprises but did not know what they would be...

You probably expected that MS would have fscked something up. I guess you weren't surprised.
