Changing Display Language in Win 7

My aunt in Canada sent me her only slightly used Toshiba Satilite laptop. The problem is that the display language is French, and being a typical Yank, I only speak American.

Initial research showed that changing display languages required upgrading to Win 7 Ultimate. But then I heard that Windows 7 originally comes in English. So if it is in French now, it was changed from English during instalation. Therefore, it you restore the operating system to the factory settings, all will be OK.

My questions are:

Will restoring Windows 7 (Home Premium) to the original factory settings change the display language back to English?

If so, how do I do it?

If not, is there another way to change the display language without upgrading?

Instructions can be found in the help system for that item:

Control Panel >> Region & Language

Click the "Keyboards & Languages" tab

Click the blue "How can I install additional languages?" at the bottom of the dialog box.
