Hi folks , this is my first post, so please excuse me if it ends up in the wrong area.

I need some help please, after upgrading my computer to an official version of XP Pro complete with all service packs, the @ symbol has moved from its original place to the number 2 key. I guess my keyboard thinks its American.

I have set my regional settings to the UK, to no avail, and ther are no settings in the keyboard section in control panel that could make a difference.

Can anyone come up with a tip ? I would be really greatful.

Many thanks in advance.
