KEYBOARD INPUTTING WRONG CHARACTERS

When I type some characters the wrong one appears. This is not consistent. It has caused me to get locked out of accounts because wrong passwords are entered. I have tried different keyboards with no success. Drivers are apparently up to date. I am running Windows 7.

Control Panel - Regional settings and languages - set to the langauge of your choice (English UK?)

If it keeps changing to English US then delete the option English US

Sorry, I should have said the correct language is set.

On one of the settings it sometimes gives both UK and US and you have to remove the US part.But if you have checked it cannot be that.

A friend suggested doing a system restore to before when the problem started. This seems to have worked!
