I'm not sure how to do this in Vista as I don't use it.

However, you need to ensure that the keyboard is set to English UK and not English US.

Control Panel,clock language region,Change keyboard or other input methods, Formats tab and select English UK

Regional and Language Options

use the other tabs to change as required

Easiest way is to goto control panel and switch to classic view and follow this below;

Missing @ Symbol

Normally this is a result of having a system set up for the US and not UK

Workaround solution: (1)

( Press and hold Shift + 2 ) should give = @

Changing your system keyboard configuration to uk in XP

Click Start / Control Panel / Switch to Classic View - click regional and language settings - looks like a globe

Select the region that you want then click on advanced - ensure there is a tick in the very bottom box that apples it to every user and default user setting.

Now goto the languages tab - select the region that you want - then click on the add button.

In the little box if you have another region in there as well - select it then click on the remove button.

Now click apply and then ok - then restart your pc - that should sort that out for you.

This is assuming you have Windows XP Home/Professional.

Oops forget the essay,its slightly different in Vista,though you can still access Regional and Language Options through control panel/classic view.

I must learn to type quicker Lol
