I had a user with the same problem using a Microsoft wireless keyboard and mouse. This is a similar setup to most Logitech wireless desktop kits, there is one wireless receiver for both devices and it has a USB connector as well as a normally unused PS/2 (it comes with an adapter for the USB so you can use this on an old computer without USB). The user went on a trip and another "helpful" user that was in his office noticed the wireless receiver's PS/2 cable unplugged and decided to plug it in for him. I'm actually amazed that it worked as well as it did but Windows didn't recognize the keyboard correctly (103 key keyboard?). All I did to solve this problem was to unplug the PS/2 conector and load the correct software for the keyboard. I also put tape and a note on the unneeded connector to prevent this from happening again.

The ten-key keypad is used for the calculator too. The button to swith between these modes is just aboc=ve the key and has a picture of a calculator. To use directional arrow keys, this keyboard comes with it's own separate arrow keys located under the delete button. They felt no need for directional function, number input function, and calculator function.
Unfortunately, a US keyboard is set up to send out keycodes for the US symbols. If you're using Windows 7, this information from Microsoft may be helpful.For XP, you can try changing your regional settings in the Control Panel (Start > Control Panel > Regional and Language Options). You can try changing the keyboard layout and see what happens.
One sure way to get the symbols from any keyboard is by using alt codes. Hold down the ALT key and (on the numeric pad) press 0128 for the Euro symbol (€). ALT-0163 gives you the Pound Sterling symbol (£).
