Some ideas:

1) The unmatched brackets are a typesetting feature. They only appear  
in typeset (StandardForm and TraditionalForm) cells, not InputForm  
cells. Maybe you changed something like the Cell>Default Input Format  
Type menu.

2) Some setting in the global preferences file. It's location is  
given by the command

ToFileName[{$PreferencesDirectory, "FrontEnd"}, "init.m"]

Move or delete this file then restart the fe. You might also try  
removing the caches located in the same directory.

3) Some setting in the stylesheets. Have you edited the stylesheets?  
If so, one of the changes you made may have caused this. You can  
restore the stylesheets by copying them off the CD or re-installing.
