New computer - Wndows Vista - apart from OS, only loaded Microsoft Office. Now the key board will not produce an @ for email but instead produces " . What is the solution to this ??

Any help welcome.

Control Panel> Regional and Language> Regional Options> English (UK) on XP anyway.

Thanks to Johnny and Candun - problem now resolved - although language settings needed to be changed on quite a few of the tabs.
