Are you saying that the AltGr (right Alt) key is interpreted as the
left Alt key?  It shouldn't; what is the value of w32-recognize-altgr
variable?

Also, does it help to press the right Alt and left Ctrl keys
simultaneously, instead of the AltGr key?

Finally, what version of Emacs is that? what does "M-x emacs-version
RET" display?
