I could be wrong, but it may be caused by a virus/malware click here. Have you done antivirus & malware scans to rule this out? G

Uninstall the keyboard and reboot the PC, let windows find new hard ware and reinstall it.

If no joy with FB's suggestion, try this Kb remapper click here. The program is downloadable by clicking on the 'KeyTweak - Keyboard Remapper v2.3.0' link.

Microsoft have something similar - Keyboard Layout Creator click here. G
