but now when i right click on the desktop i get :

Hello

This can be fixed. You have to open the registry (Start < Run type regedit) then I advice you right click in the window that comes up "My Computer" press export and save it some where, where you could find it. This will serve as a backup just in case some thing goes wrong.

Now go Edit < find and type those arabic words and search for them one at a time. Tell me where you find then and I will tell you what ones you should change.

Hi spirit_slash.

I am from Israel so I am a little familiar with this kind of problems though in another language. In most cases these problems are solved by: contro panel > regional and language. In Languages drop menu make sure that the box "install files for complex script and right to left...." is checked. Then in the same place make sure that "Language used in menus ....." is English. Go to regional options and make sure English appears in the upper dialog box. As for the bottom one, "Location", put the country of your choice. Now go to Adanced and make sure that English appears there at the top dialog box. Now, very important, check the box "Apply all settings to the current user account ...... Follow the instructions and I believe that you are set.
