I have another issue on that same Lenovo Windows 7 Ultimate Desktop Computer from my other topic.

 

As I mentioned over there, I bought this computer on Craig's List.  And by the settings and looks of everything it had at the time, it was obvious they had used it in Mexico.

 

I managed to find various settings dealing with language and I changed them to English.

I made the computer better at not displaying stuff in Spanish, but there is STILL Spanish text appearing here and there.

My Google Chrome on this computer has been very much kidnapped by Spanish text.

But, it also happens in my Windows 7 as well.

 

What ALL places there in the Control Panel would have to have settings changed in order to have my computer NOT be displaying anything in Spanish?

From the history of the computer, it sounds like a Spanish version of windows was probably installed, changing the language setting to English most things will change to English but not all.

DOH!  That had not crossed my mind.

Is there anyway of confirming it? 

Like in the Control Panel > System ... nothing is mentioned about the Windows 7 being Spanish.

 

I actually do know plenty of Spanish, but it is not my 1st language.  So, I much prefer to be reading everything in English.

If it turns out that it definitely IS a Spanish version, then Ehhh, so be it.  It'll work for now until I get me another computer.
