James,
What you have told me about how to change the keyboard from american to english isn't completley helping.
I think the control panel in our two versions of windows are slightley different because when You go into the control panel the only link that I can find that is related with 'regional settings' is called 'region and langauage' and did seem like I've done what you told me but I have still got the keys the wrong way around. Now I wouldn't of thought that it being a different version of windows 7 would make a difference but to be apsolutely sure, my windows 7 is professional.

Answer

Go to start-control panel-region and language-the first tab (format) should have English (United Kingdom)if not click on the arrow and change it, then click on the'keyboards and languages' tab then change keyboards.
You should see that English (United Kingdom)-United kingdom is shown at the top. If not click on add scroll to English(United Kingdom) and check it,then OK, go back to the main box click on English(United states) then click on remove, restart PC and that should be it sorted.

For future reference you can set the keyboard language when you are installing Windows which will save you this bother.

I just didnt relise that you said to delete Us langauge.
Thank you for your help.
You sure know how to clearly explain stuff in so much detail, because normally need screenshots to solve probulems.
