The keyboard is set to usa language instead of uk.

Easy to sort.
On xp.

Go in to the control panel and its the "regional and language" bit u want. Chane the regional option to uk for both bits. Then click on the languages bit then the details button. In there change the default input language to uk and click apply.

On vista is the clock language and region bit u want in the non classic view control panel. Then just change to uk.

Hope that sorts it for you?

My shift 2 is not working right to type in my email address instead of at i get this "

Your keyboard may have gotten switched to UK English setting. Whatever key you see the " on, try holding down Shift and hitting that key. I wouldn't be surprised if @ shows up.

As a last resort, open Microsoft Word, go to Insert>Symbols and open and copy the @ symbol there to a text doc on your desktop and you can paste it in until you get a new keyboard or change the settings.
