I have a Microsoft wireless comfort keyboard 5000 - just got it 2 weeks ago, when I go to use the right shift key with the number 2 so I can get an "@" symbol all it does is take my browser to my home page like it is a short cut command?? I have no idea how to fix
OS: Windows XP
Browser: Firefox 3.5.5

Have you set the key combination "Shift+2" as a shortcut for the Internet browser?

I was referring to the keyboard software(if any) provided my Microsoft.

Anyway, after having looked up this issue, it looks like only users of wireless keyboards face something like this, probably due to some interference.

So I suggest you trying using this keyboard with another PC and another keyboard with this one, just to isolate the fault with your keyboard.
Cleaning the keyboard may help.

Ultimately, you'll have to get it replaced if the problem persists.
