This problem didn't occur with Beta and RC1 on the same machime (Asus laptop).

Situation: Installed Windows 7 Ultimate RTM (Downloaded fro MSDN a couple of days ago)

When I type a single or double quote it doesn't appear until I press any other key.

I tried NumLock and Scroll Lock off and on but no resolution.

Plugged anotherf (USB) keyboard in and same problem..
Remote desktoped into the system and same problem.
Rebooted, still there ???

I am wondering whether this is my system/setup or a bug.
It annoying when programming ( doing strings or VB comments!)

Where do I reposrt possible bugs.

PS I rang MS in Australia.
They didn't undrstand: They said its only a trial version.
I said its the Release to Manufacturer Version.
They said you'l have to speak to the manufacturer
.. ha ha! (My comment)

Can you check your keyboard and language options, as I've heard of this happening before when an incorrect keyboard layout is selected. If you are in the United States, try switching from "United States - International" to "US" keyboard layout.

Thanks a million. That was the answer. Had a bit of fiddling to resolve that. I had installed as US International. I'd change to US only from the taskbar but it kept flipping back. Had to do it from the control panel:
Region & Language
Keyboard & Languages
Then had to select US-Australia (I'm in Australia)
Then deleted US-International as an option

Shouldn't have selected US International at install time.

I owe you a beer if we ever meet up.
