Change the option in Windows to United Kingdom (under Regional and Language Options in the Control Panel) and then you can access the £ sign by pressing Shift and 3.

Is it not possible to asign £ to just one key?

I'm assuming you're using a US keyboard layout. A standard US keyboard, for whatever reason, doesn't include the AltGr or any "dead keys", and thus offers no way of inputting any sort of diacritic or accent. It also doesn't offer the £ sign or the € sign (as apparently "you don't need them"). The US International keyboard shows you what to press to get these signs, but Windows still assumes a standard US keyboard until you tell it otherwise.
See http://en.wikipedia....board_layout#US for the differences. Also scroll this Wiki entry up a bit for how it varies between the UK keyboard layout and the US layout.
