If XP, did you also go to Languages and then Details? That's where you can change the keyboard

When you said you had set everything to UK, Did you do this bit?

Control Panel -> Regional and language Options -> Languages tab -> Click on 'Details' and set both the 'Default input language' and the 'Installed services' (the keyboard) to UK -> click on 'Apply' and 'OK'

hi, yes and i've just double checked it too. Also, ive just been back in to it and removed the US options. no question mark, i get this / no 'at' symbol, i get this '

I've just noticed that it is because the left hand shift works but the right one doesn't!!

Sorry everybody!!
