Check that the keyboard is set to uk layout in the control panel regional and language options

It`s the keyboard layout or regional settings in Control Panel. Make sure they are English UK not US layout.

Thanks for the advice - I've checked that - changed the currency to £ etc. but it hasn't resolved the @/" problem.

as the other two suggest, add the keyboard language United Kingdom, click to remove the United States entry. there will be a warning about it needing a reboot. after a reboot you will have the english keyboard only and the @ will be in the right place.
