Sounds like you need to change your keyboard language.

Control Panel - Regional and Language Options - Languages - Details - pick
your language.

RE: How do i change my keyboard layout when typing @

That usually happens when you are typing on an IBM keyboard using standard
keyboard layout or vice versa. If you own an IBM keyboard your "@" should be
above the right shift button and your double quote on the "2" - check if your
keyboard layout options include something like IBM 220 or 319 and try them
out. If you own a standard keyboard your "@" should be on digit "2"
(shifted), right above "Q" & "W" - then your keyboard layout might correspond
to another layout, such as IBM's.

Where is your "@" situated?
