do start > settings > control panel > then you should see a regional and language settings (looks like a globe) open that...then i believe you need the second tab on that window (sorry i'm on 2000 at home)...and make sure both boxes on that screen say english..then you'll need to restart and everything should be readable...then go back to that screen and make sure everything there says english

Dsennette's instructions worked for me on Win XP. Had a whole list of foreign languages under Regional and Language Options in Control Panel.

Must be another problem not related to this? :whistling:

The only way I know of to get the entire Operating System in English is to uninstalled current version of O/S to an earlier Windows version that will allow the upgrade to the O/S you want in English. Uninstalling current O/S may restore your PC to an earlier version, but it may also be in another language.

I can not see changing the complete O/S to English any other way, but some of the other more experience Gurus in this forum may have an idea.

Not much help from me. Sorry.

the only way that i know of to install those files is to use the windows MUI (multi user interface) stuff from microsoft...search the microsoft website for MUI and see if they have a place to order the cd...
