    Ok, so I had Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 2, but I wanted Professional because I heard it takes advantage of the dual core thing when Home doesn't, so I installed Windows XP Professional Media Center Edition 2005 and then upgraded to Service Pack 2. I didn't do anything on the computer before upgrading to Service pack 2, except register the computer and things, which I found out my problem. When entering my Email, instead of the @ sign coming up, the " sign came up.. here is a list of the keys that shouldn't be coming out when the button(s) is/are pressed(Note, I have an American Keyboard and an American copy of Windows):

    Shift+2="
    Shift+3=£
    Shift+`=¬
    Shift+'[email protected]
    Not this / but the other slash=#
    Shift+Not this / but the other slash=~

    Is there anything known to fix this? Because this is getting very annoying, and I just want my keyboard to be normal lol.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated
    Thanks in advance,
    -Mr. Waffles

    Have you tried going to Control Panel> Regional and Language Options> Language tab> Details Button and setting the language to English(United Kingdom) by selecting Add and then selecting English(united Kingdom)? Or you can remove english uk or english usa.
