Bring up the Preferences dialog (under the Edit menu) and make sure that, in the 
Evaluation tab, the format type of new output cells is set to StandardForm.

This is the default setting, but it could have been changed accidentally, and 
possibly in a previous version of Mathematica (this option used to be on the
menus where it was easier to hit it by accident).
