I've recently done a clean install of Win XP Pro to get rid of the accumulated clutter.
Since then the @ key has transposed to the " key (upper case 2). I've checked MS KB to no avail. This didn't happen the last time I re-installed. Anyone any ideas?
Thanks in anticipation

Sounds like you haven't set the correct language after the reinstall.
Go to Control panel > Regional and Language Options.
On the Regional Options tab:
Set Standards and formats to "English (United Kingdom)" and Location to "United Kingdom".
On the Languages tab:
Click the Details button and set the Default input language to "English (United Kingdom) - United Kingdom".
On the Advanced tab:
Set the Language for non-Unicode programs to "English (United Kingdom)".

Thank you Rev, succinct and effective. My keyboard now responds correctly.
No doubt I'll be back again next weekend as I am building a new system then.
