In ie6 i used to be able to type
g some search in the address bar to do a search with google or y to do a search with yahoo etc. This function has now gone. Help plz.

Also, when i press shifht and say 3 the dollar sign does not appear, just a 3, i seem have lost the shift key use. Help again plz.

Not sure about the IE6 bit but I had a problem with my keyboard after a clean install. My @ sign and the " sign got swapped around or the shift 2 and the shift'.
Anyway, I discovered that during set up of Windows you need to set your keyboard to English version and not U.S.
You can do this after install by going to control panel, then regional languages.
Hope this solves at least one of your problems.
