Besides the QWERTY keyboard is there a number pad - if so number lock will be on there.

Go to Control Panel - Regional & Language - Keyboards & Languages Tab - Change Keyboard - click Launguage and make sure Enlglish (United Kingdom) is selected - if not Add - click OK

Use "left hand" side of keyboard ALT and SHIFT to toggle between layouts.

I sometimes catch this combination typing quickly.
