    Hello, I've discovered a really annoying problem in Vista and it is bugging the [bleep] out of me, I can only get the @ symbol to display while using an administrators account, if I log into a standard user account the @ symbol displays as " , I cannot get the @ symbol to display in anything: web forms, notebook, Open Office, nothing. Can anyone tell me why this crazy situation exists?

    Does a Guest account allow you to go to Control Panel to alter the keyboard to English (UK)?

    Yes it does, but it makes no difference, I found that my keyboard language setting was set to English uk and another available setting for Israeli, so I kicked out the Israeli setting but no difference, still no @ symbol, however I am now able to get the @ symbol when I press the double quote ", this did not happen before, I'm not quite sure what's going on here, but that will do for me! ha ha.

    With all the language options set to English (UK) and the keyboard set to the same, the @ symbol should respond from its proper key but if a capital 2 does it for you, so be it.
