I am running a Compaq Presario SR1020LA with windows XP Home SP1. The thing is i obught it in mexico so logicaly the OS is in spanish. (i know how to speak spanish so i can still use it). When i first booted the computer i went through windows settings wizard which is normal for any new computer and i set the language to "english (United States)" and my location to the US. when the wizard ended and i got into windows the OS was still in spanish but i did not notice any problems untill a week after when i tried to do a search from Start>Search and i got a weird error message (it was in spanish but ill translate it) it said "could not initialize search. Serach assistent not found" my only option was to close the error window. i tried searching different ways but the same error ocurred so i dided well ill change my language to spanish see what happens so i entered regional options and languages from the control panel and changed my language and location to Mexico and reeboted. Guess What? i still got the same error. so i decided to make a backup of my files and reinstall the OS this time setting the original language to spanish and location to mexico in the settings wizard everytime you first boot windows. After i did that i could search normaly no problem. so i tried changing the language and location form the control panel to english again and i got the error and i switched back and i was still getting the error. Reinstalled the OS again in spanish and didnt try it again now i installed SP2 and i havent tried it and i dont know if i should because if i do and it doesnt work ill probably have to reinstall the OS. NEED HELP PLEASE.
