Getting " instead of @

  Bald Eagle 16:54 24 May 2006

Daughter has new computer running XP home. On setting up and trying to enter internet settings she cannot access the @ sign, all she gets is “ instead. This is the same using both UK and American English. Any suggestions?

And further to surfmonkey #:@}©s post you have to click apply and ok or it'll reset itself to US English.

LeftALT+Shift may do it if all else fails.

Deleting the US English option from that list is a good idea, too. It stops it from reverting.

She did the "apply" bit and all is well. Many thanks lads and/or lasses.
