.......... Then if I press NumLock the delete key types dots.
And the Home key types 7s.

I have checked the keyboard type and it's correct.
If I use the on-screen keyboard I get very similar results.
I have also reinstalled the Keyboard Drivers to no avail.

Any suggestions would be most welcome

The NumLock appears to be working normally, pressing it will toggle between the markings on the Ten-key pad, i.e. the 7 will become Home or vice versa, 1 becomes End, 9 becomes pgup, etc. Press NumLock turns it on or off which changes the functions of those keys as marked. The On-screen number pad should work the same, same purpose.

An update: the Shift + Del key on the Key Pad is normal for deleting IF the NumLock is On, if NumLock is Off it is the Del key only.

Hi bighorn

Thanks for the update.
I am embarrassed to sat that my problem is finger trouble.
I was expecting the DEL key to delete to the left which of course is wrong.
I deletes of course to the right and that is what I get.
Sorry for the trouble.

No problem. Now if you had been using a Macintosh computer the function would have worked properly. Holding down the Fn key on a Mac and pressing Delete does erase to the right.
