I just want to know if it is possible to change the language to Windows XP

My computer came by default with Spanish Windows,

How can I make my operating system run in English?

open control panel (start > run > control) then look for regional settings.....may be hard if it's in spanish. it usually has a globe as an icon...then find the right regional setting

I don't think there is an option in XP Home to change the menus, help files, etc to a different language.

well...there is...sort of...by changing your regional settings it changes the language that most thinga are automatically displayed as....which will fix most things.....if you;re wanting full blown foreign language XP you kind of have to buy that lanuage

I've read that in XP Pro you can change menus, help files etc into different languages using the 'Multi User Interface' feature...

Yes dude that is absolutly possible to change the language of dialog boxes and all those menu items to any language of your choice .For that you need the MUI.

Does that work with XP Home? I assume not but just checking. I don't know what 'XP Embedded' is.
