virtual keyboards and landscape view

Recently I had to reinstall the software on my Torch because something went wrong after I downlaoded an app and my phone kept continuously rebooting in a loop. Since reinstalling the software, though, I have noticed some things that are different and one is that the virtual keyboard never appears anymore. Not only that but the phone does not seem to be able to change to landscape view anymore, except when viewing a YouTube video. And lately, the YouTube videos stop part way through and never start back up again, as they do when just buffering temporarily.

Is there something missing from the software I downloaded? Is there a special version of the OS6 that is just for the Torch?
