Default Strange Keyboard Problem

Hi,

I've been having a problem with my keys lately where several of my keys seem to have been rebound. For example, pressing shift-3, which would normally yield a # symmbol now bring up "£" instead. Strangely enough, none of the alphabet keys have been affected, only those with "secondary" keys when shift is pressed.

Switching keyboards doesn't seem to have an effect on this, so it may be a problem with Windows itself, but I'm not sure.

Intrestingly, the On-screen Keyboard seems to be similarly affected.

Here is a screen dump of the virtual keyboard.
OSC Problem

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
