Hi there!

I'm British and bought my laptop over there a few years ago, so of course the key for " was to "hold shift and 2", however while being here in the U.S., I had to get my hardware wiped and rebooted entirely due to a particularly bad rootkit virus. However I got it back today and all of a sudden the key for " is where my @ used to be, and vice versa!

You have no idea how frustrating it is having been used to the locations of " and @ suddenly being reversed! Is there anyway I can just outright change them back?

Thank you!

Go into your control panel -> Regional and Language Options the Options you need should be in there some where.

Atleast they are on Xp I believe. Should be in a fairly similar place on other OS though. Dig Around in there I bet you find it.

Good Luck
