Having trouble using a ProHT Bluetooth keyboard with Windows 7

Hello all,
I recently bought a Inland ProHT Bluetooth keyboard to use on my Windows 7 Desktop. The part number is 71101. Everything works fine except the backspace key, which on the bluetooth keyboard is the "del" key. That obviously is no problem for a mac or iPad, but my computer interprets the "del" key for what it is ... the "del" key. So when I am typing, if I make a mistake it is impossible (short of using the arrow keys and wasting tons of time) to "backspace". Very frustrating. Need to know if there is any way to perhaps change the layout of the keyboard or somehow change "del" to mean "backspace". Thanks in advance!

    That is exactly my problem. Is there any way to fix it?

    Just off the top of my inexperienced head:
    Is there a way to tell the computer it's dealing with a mac keyboard? Or maybe editing ASCII to take "del" as backspace...wouldn't mind that!

    It says: "I had to remap 5 keys esc end print home backspace. Remapping is easy with Keytweak."
