Office 2007 and the dollar sign $$

I just reinstalled windows, and office. Now, in office, and ONLY office documents the $ is replaced with an unusual character I have never seen before. In an attempt to describe it it is a less then sign, with two lines horizontal at the top. If I copy, and paste this character into notepad, at appears as a dollar sign. Again, if I create a file in notepad, and copy and paste these $$$, they appear as this unusual character.
How do I get my dollar sign back?

Additional note:
When I load an office document previously made that includes working dollar signs (well, that appeared as such on other computers) it converts them to this symbol.

    Sounds like the symbol for the Indian Rupee. Is your office somehow set up for Indian localization?
  2. How do I check/change that? Or do you mean office as in office space? Office space, no. Its my own store. As far as Microsoft office, how do I check/change that?
  3. Forgot to add, in Microsoft office language settings 2007, the only enabled editing language is English (U.S.) if that matters
  4. Well, I fixed it. After you said that I googled "dollar sign shows as rupees symbol in word" and got a suggestion it was a font issue. IN the fonts directory there was a file called _indianrupee.ttf. I deleted it, and all is well. Your answer didn't solve the problem, but it lead me to the solution.
