Win 10 Pro Insists on Using English International Keyboard for Login Screen

Recently upgraded a Dell Inspiron i3 laptop from Win 7 Pro to Win 10 Pro (and before that, this laptop had been upgrade from Win 7 Home to Win 7 Pro).
 
The laptop has decided that anyone who is logging in wants to use the English International keyboard, no matter what steps I try to make it otherwise.  This means that people using certain special characters in their passwords (~ and ^ in particular) become quite confused when they type in a '^', see nothing and then do it again only to see two carets.  Yes, I've got a workaround... type a space and the single character occurs.

The keyboard is set to US English and indeed, when logged in, that's the keyboard in use.  On the login screen I can change the keyboard to English standard and login normally, but it reverts back to international at the next login.
 
This is the only PC out of 40 that I upgraded that is experiencing this issue, and google searches have been singularly unhelpful in tracking this down.
 
Suggestions?  TIA.

Also make sure your language pack precedence is set correctly
open settings
time and language
region and language (left hand menu)
make sure the language you are after has its language pack installed and set as default. it should have "windows display language" displayed in it
