Some special characters coming out wrong on my computer
I am using a Windows 7 x64 computer and several keys on my keyboard are misbehaving. When I press the tilde (~), at (@) or hash (#) keys I see different characters.
The characters that I am seeing are as follows -
Initially I installed a Microsoft USB Keyboard, and when I did so some software - in the style of Windows 8 - was installed. As I suspected that the Windows 8 "style" software may be at fault I uninstalled it (however there was no improvement). I then tried a Logitech USB keyboard with the same outcome, and finally tried a Microsoft PS2 keyboard.
Having tried 3 different keyboards with the same effect I am convinced that the issue is with the computer itself.
If anybody has any suggestions on how to fix this they will be greatly appreciated.
