Strange backspace behaviour...

Sorry if this topis wasn't supposed to be here, but I couldn't find a better topic. My problem might seem riculously simple, but I've beem trying to solve it without any success:

When writing on MS Word (Win XP, Office 2003), if I press the backspace button, letters I've written will be deleted - as they should. If I select an entire word or phrase in the middle of the text and press backspace, however, nothing will happen. Alternatively, if I select a block of text and start typing, it would usually replace the selected block, right? Wrong! Not anymore. It will only insert what I'm writing wherever the cursor is placed. I tried to press the insert button, but nothing changed.

To make things more odd, I can write normally here on IE, but the backspace won't work as it should when I'm working with Adobe Photoshop, for instance.

Am I being a jerk or there is something you experts can help me with?

Thanks in advance for your terrific help - I'm sure.

Friend,
Please stop asking if you are being a jerk. There is no shame in asking for help. Ever.

About your problem,
Have you tried pluging in a new keyboard? Does this happen in ALL programs, or just those few?
