You don't specify your OS, but probably need to change the keyboard settings in control panel, regional etc. Come back with the OS and will provide exact route.

Region and languages in control panel.Make sure it is all set to English Uk.

Try in there till someone can give you better advice.

I'd say you need to try a new keyboard - the characters you mention (u and i - b and n) are next to each other on the layout which implies a fault with the key depressions.

True I need to find a keyboard to see if that agreed sounds like one my my adorable children may have done more than press a few buttons. O well thanks for all the tips.
You guys gals rock ;-)
