    after updating from XP home to XP pro,when Itype @ I get " and vice versa,several other characters are wrong also.Have looked for other keyboard drivers on the net,one that looked promising would only work if the pc had not been changed from initial configuration.I am not a complete novice but this has got me stumped,any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Check your regional settings & keyboard layout in control panel.

    Its well hidden.
    Control Panel - Regional and Language - Languages - Detaiils - Installed Services.

    Make sure your keyboard is correct. That is exactly the problem if its US and should be UK, or vice versa.

    Bit hard to advise you which it should be, you dont say where you are.
