If it's Win XP did you change both the top and bottom boxes in Regional Settings to United Kingdom?

If it's Win98 you need to make the change under Keyboard.

Press ALT + Shift together.

Ive tried that too but it means I have to do it everytime I switch pc back on - its only happened since i installed XP - could it be anything to do with this - Ive even changed my kepboard in case it was that!

I know you said you looked in Languages but did you click the Details button and check the setting there?

Control Panel, Regional and Language options, make sure all is set to UK, I mean ALL.

Are you clicking the Apply button then the Okay button when you make the changes in regional settings?

I dont think so - what do I look for?
