Why my computer is insert incorrect symbols?

When I go to insert the citation of my computer brands inserts the symbol @ instead. It is one of the easier to explain replacements. If someone can tell me why or how there to remedy, I'd be much aprecciated. also, I think that it is perhaps something to do with the new microsoft office program I installed.

Yes on the side in the bottom right of the computer screen to two letters indicating the language in which is pre-set at the time. the exchange of the symbol may be because you have NumLock

  • Is the another great category why my computer is slow?

    I get a lot of beach and the General slow balls spinning this month.

    One thing I checked last week my storage status. 237 free GB to 999 GB and 618 for which is the category "other"!  I hate this wave "other" category. Here is a screenshot.

    You can see that I have barely keep anything on my internal drive. I don't have a lot of applications. The ones I use regularly is Mail, Safari, Lightroom and Photoshop.

    A few years ago I learned about a procedure in disk utility to completely erase the disk space, but when I went to do, I couldn't find more, as El Capitan got rid of him. Is there something similar I can do?

    Is this large amount of yellow on the bar as alarming as it looks and probably why my computer is slow?

    Thank you!

    p.s. in another thread, I will post about a glitch that happens with my trash. Maybe it's related.

    The function of Secure Erase of Trash was removed to El Capitan. One of the reasons was that it worked as expected. The other is that it reduces the life expectancy of the SSD.

    I would suggest your download and install OmniDiskSweeper. When you rum ODS, it will tell you the names of the files and folders that use the most space. You can then decide for yourself or ask us what can be detected or moved.

    The first step in the process must be a full backup of everything.

    Well, to prevent to load in safe mode, you should be able to press F8 when your computer starts, then select start windows normally. If it says that you have hardware problems or network you can or you can't.

To enter the Device Manager, right click on my computer, then select Properties, then on the new close window left click Device Manager.
