I sometimes find that " and @ have swapped places. There's no pattern to it that I can discern. It can happen in the middle of the day.

Maybe you've inadvertently been hitting ALT+SHIFT? That's the Windows shortcut for switching inputlanguages. If so, you could uninstall the English keyboard layout, like so:

  1. Go to Control Panel / Regional and Language Settings / Language Settings / Details.
  2. Under "installed services", mark "English US" and hit the "Remove" button next to the list.

Thanks. I now have only English (Ireland). – TRiG Jan 14 '11 at 16:07
Visual Studio users can suffer from this problem because SHIFT-ALT-ENTER is the shortcut to full screen mode. – Martin Jan 14 '11 at 17:13
