    " and @ reversal (again...)

    I just changed the operating system on my Sony touch Vaio to Windows 8.1 Pro from Windows 8.1. The usual key reversal of @/" has happened. As I live in the UK and have been used to this over the years, I have changed the language to UK, downloaded the UK language pack, changed the location to UK and done everything I can think of. It still comes up as " for @ and @ for ". What do I fix now?

    Thanks!

    Thanks bbrean

    I had done all of that which was frustrating to say the least. The only way I found to finally do it was to delete English US as a choice. All well now. Thanks again!
