Go into the control panel and click on the icon "regional and language" and see if it's on English United kingdom. If not, change it.

As has been said, it sounds as if you've got the US keyboard selected.
You should find that the # key will give you the sign and vice-versa.
The @ will be transposed with the " as well, if memory serves me correctly.
As Ken says, it's easy enough to put right.

. . . so much for that idea then!

As a matter of interest, did the # key produce a sign?

Smile Smile ....tried that early on.... No nor did it produce a ~ It produced a # or a vertical line.

Jestertheclown

I don't think I know the correct way to produce a vertical line!

Sorry Mike, I really can't help.
