I would like some help to resolve my situation.
I have found that the Number One on my keyboard is coming up not as a number but as a whole sentence which i cannot remove?
Any ideas?

Is the "Numer One" the one above your "Q" or in your num pad? Shortcut keys can only be set (with also adding Ctrl+Alt) to the num pad keys. If it is indeed your num pad, we can try to map the shortcut keys.

Also, what is that sentence, if it can be posted here?

First of all, clear your temporary files.
  • Click on your Start menu and select Run.
  • Type into the run box cleanmgr and hit OK.
  • A window will pop-up asking which drive you want to clean. Select your operating drive.
    This is usually C:. If you are unsure, right click on your Start Menu and select Open. In the first part of the address you will see your operating drive letter.
  • The wizard will proceed to estimating the amount of space it can free up.
  • After that is done, which should only take a moment, you will be asked to choose what areas you wish to clean. Put a check mark beside Temporary Internet files, Recycling Bin and Temporary files. Please leave the others unchecked.
  • Hit OK to start the cleaning. The window will close itself upon completion.
Did this "reset" the key?

With Regards,
The Panda

Thankyou for your post.
Initally i thought i had a virus on my comp as the sentence was strange.
I have now found that is was ShortKey.
I have never come across this before and it was another member of the family that had done it!
Thankyou for your time.
