The first thing to try is to switch your keyboard out with a known good one to see if the problem persists. If the problem is not present with the second keyboard, replace your keyboard.
If this is not the problem, post back and we'll dig a little deeper.

What you describe is often the result of the keyboard language being set incorrectly ( e.g. English (United States) when it should be English (British).
Go to Control Panel > Keyboard > Language.
Is the default language your one of choice?
If not click on Add and select the appropriate one. You will probably need the Windows CD.

If there is no language listed as a default click Add - you should get a long list of options - select your country of choice.
This option usually defaults to English (US) on installation and I know British users experience your key mixup until we ADD English (British).
If you are sucessful you will need to make your selection the default.

Go to Start > Control Panel > Regional Settings you should be able to select English (US) or English (British) etc. from the list.
You may need your installation CD.

Do you have a "Macro" key on your keyboard. (Usually located on the upper left of the keyboard)

You're on the wrong keymap, that's why your keys are all funny. in the box under default input language, try deleting the english (united kingdom) option so that the only keymap you have left is english (united states), or the other way around... depending on which country you're actually in lol. I cant actually tell from your post.

Just so we don't overlook the simple fix in favor of more complex ones. Unplug your keyboard from the computer and shut it down. Plug the keyboard back in and power the machine on.
