Make sure Keyboard is set to British.

Your keyboard is set to English US (installed by default MS is an American company)

You should have installed the English UK keyboard when windows is first installed. It can still be changed see Startli post above.

Sometimes hitting a certain combination of keys (can't rember which) changes it from one to the other.
