It is your setup, when you install ME will ask for the region in which you live.

You need to enter Control Panel -> Regional and Language Options

Change them to the country you are in.

It can also depend on what keyboard you have, US Keyboard or UK Keyboard.

I don't understand what kind of key you're talking about. what program are you using for emails? maybe there is something wrong with your email account setup?
