Ah, you use C++ ... it can be changed.

Open VS, and go to "Tools ... Options"
Open the "C/C++" branch, and select "Advanced".
Scroll to the bottom of the list, and you'll find "Text Editor"
Under that are two options "Enable Surround with Braces" and "Enable Surround with Parentheses" - set then to "False" and it'll stop doing it.

False is the default for these, so either the config file got messed up, or somebody specifically enabled them on your machine ...
