when I press Shift/2 (") is typed, it should be (@)

Check regional settings in control panel most everything should be set to Australia, on the languages tab click details and make sure the keyboard is the correct one.

here's how...

1. go to control panel and open "clock,language and region"
2. there'll be a pop-up then choose "keyboard ad languages" tab
3. then choose a default language as
English (USA) instead of some other formats...
if it has more than 1 format, remove other formats
Done...
