it is fixable! dp says it sounds like the settings have been changed to a diff country (ie american keyboard settings rather than uk)...

have a hunt around in yuor settings and see if you can find it... if your ds did it, it shouldn't be too hard for you to find!

we are running firefox so can't figure it out for you! sorry

In Windows, go to Control Panel>Regional and Language options. Click the Languages tab. Click the details button in the top box - you'll probably see that "default input language" has been set to something other than UK English (or wherever you are) - reset it and it should be OK.
