Strange symbols in Windows Live emails

  DeeGee 15:15 PM 20 Jan 12

I have recently acquired a new computer operating Windows 7. Not being able to use Outlook Express I am now using Windows Live Mail for sending and receiving emails and have notice a peculiarity. Instead of hyphens and apostrophes I am typing peculiar symbols including euro symbol. Finding this very frustrating. I am using a cordless Logitech keyboard, is this part of the problem? Plain English language in any answers please, I am 72yrs old and although computer literate, don't understand gobbledeegook! Thanks in advance.
