Windows doubles certain keystrokes after Update

    Hey, I'm on an ACER 5672AWLMi Laptop and after the latest windows update
    (aug. 11th 2010) it started writing two accents instead of one (example: ´´
    <- one keystroke). So now I can't put accents over some words (which is
    hassle when trying to write in Spanish), I've ruled out the physcial keyboard
    by changing the keyboard language to three different ones, all of which
    changes the position of the accent button. Still it's only these characters
    that get doubled, where as the others work as you'd expect them to.
