I~m having an issue with my Mac keyboard not working properly with a PC running Windows XP. My punctuation is all screwy and I can~t figure out how to fix it. Hope me please!

My Mac desktop called it quits yesterday, and a wonderful neighbor offered her older PC so I can still surf the web & do my work. Unfortunately, there seems to be some disagreement between the Mac usb keyboard I~m using (pictured here
) and Windows XP pc. Specifically, the 6 keys to the right of the P, L and . keys. Where I should be getting a slash and a question mark, I~m getting ; and : (not so hard to figure out), but my the two keys above are giving me çÇ and ~^ where I should be getting my (semi)colons and double & single quotes. (The quotes are on the key under the escape key, I just noticed.) But I can't find the question mark! The keyboard options in the control panel aren't any help.
Does anyone know if there's a fix for this, or am I going to be stuck asking questions that look like statements until I pony up for a new keyboard.
Thanks in advance!
