I have a Notebook PC, which I bought in the U.S. and all the programs, browsers, Windows OS are in English. Until I got a Thai GF, then programs turned out in Thai. For example, I type Google an get Google.th. Many Thai ads, games, and other stuff come in Thai, instead of English. Even some translations don't work. How can I get rid of the Thai inundations once and for all?
My Windows OS, BTW, is Home Edition, 64-bit, if that matters. I use IE,Firefox and Torch browsers.

Pardon my ignorance, but what is a Thai GF? Have the regional settings for the laptop been changed in any way? Added Thai keyboard for instance? Or Thai character set?

Laptop running slow? Any errors happening? Reason I'm asking is you may have some adware that is targeting your laptop but it was installed / downloaded from a Thai site so you get Thai ads.

Yes, it's running slow. I've removed extraneous programs from my Control Panel, added Ram, so I now have 6GB on board. The worst is the google.co.th, since I use google search alot. May be forced to use another search engine. But it's annoying to constantly see ads in Thai...

In this case, I would think it wouldn't hurt to get a second and more informed opinion on the running state of your laptop. I would start here and see what a malware specialist says; at least they should be able to set the Google search back the way you want and then we can have the OS helpers assist with anything else after what sounds like some adware is removed.

I understand and the choice is yours (not saying there is anything wrong but) second opinions (either software or brainware) never hurt.
