HI You need to change the Keyboard Layout and Regional Settings of your PC from English US to English UK.

You need to go in Control Panel to do that.

If your Windows doesn't have a language pack installed you will have to reinstall windows and choose English UK when it ask you to set your Location and Time Zone.
Cheers
