I accepted all the default installation options.

I did not customize anything.

I am using Windows XP home edition (portuguese).

When I start a new file or open an existing file (extensions  .txt or .c), I
am unable to type square or curly brackets like {[]}.

These characters are usually typed pressing Control+Alt and keys 7, 8, 9, 0
but this does not work in EmacsW32.

If I open a file which already contains these characters, they will be
displayed; but I cann't type new ones.

Is there any way that I can solve this problem?

There is a difference between AltGr and Alt+Ctrl. Emacs will not get a curly bracket from typing Alt+Ctrl+7 or so. It will get Alt+Ctrl+7, a command, not a symbol. You should use the AltrGr key to send the correct symbol to emacs. Or switch to a US International keyboard layout, its better for programming anyway ;)

Of course you could tell emacs somehow to write a curly bracket when giving it the command "Ctrl Meta 7", but that sounds tedious.
