TM instead off @

I just started my new MacBook Pro, I been using Mac for around six years now, why I say that is this is really strange

When I press "ALT + 2" I get the "TM" symbol instead of "@", which gets really enjoying, I'm using Swedish keyboard and on my old MacBook which is on 10.5 works perfectly fine with getting "@" with "ALT + 2" and I have also tried all different keyboard combinations

when I use Canadian keyboard, my @ works, but now I can't make " instead, how can I kill the TM?

I found out that I need to press "ALT + *" to get "@", but... how can I change this? it's really annoying having a complete different key combination, how can I change it?

Is there a reason you don't want to use the standard shortcut Shift + 2 to get "@"?

Alt + 2 is standard for non-English keyboard (Czech at least, Swedish too probably )
