Troubleshooting Keyboard Settings

Wonder if anyone has a fix for this. One of the many ways in which our PC's express their individuality and contempt for the norm is to suddenly and without warning decide to revert to the American keyboard set up, transposing the @ and " and completely eradicating the £. This can occur at any time, often halfway through a document in which £ signs have been typed in the usual way - suddenly, all you can get is #. The only way I have been able to get this to change back is to log off. It then resets itself when you log on.

As this has not happened to me but only my colleagues, I am uncertain as to whether they may be accidentally resetting the keyboard using a shortcut key without being aware that they have done it.

Can anyone advise as to how to change the keyboard back to GB configuration once this has occurred (I can see nothing of any use in CONTROL PANEL/KEYBOARD), or what the shortcut could be that may be causing this to happen so I can reassign the shortcut keys and stop it happening?

All advice gratefully received!
