Look in control panel for language options / regional settings dependant on OS

You need to find the window like this one

Add the UK keyboard and make sure the UK keyboard is set as the default (you can delete the US one from the list)

Look around the windows in the same area and make sure all the options are set to UK not US (it is in about 4 or 5 places)

American keyboards don't have a € sign either.

You won't be able to get it back to a normal UK layout since their lopsided keyboard is missing a key so you'll lose two characters (I think it's either the # ~ key or the \ | key ) but settings windows to use a UK layout should at least get you the £ and @ symbol back in their normal places.
