I recently have purchased a new pc for gaming. I live in the Netherlands and my windows xp pro came in Dutch. Now I would prefer to have it in english. I look on the microsoft site and there were language interface packages. I tried one for german and afrikaans and they work fine. The english one however is not there, it takes me to a readme html file for some reason.

I bought a new laptop about 2 weeks ago. It's a Compaq Presario (? if that helps). my grilfriend is Swedish so wanted the language in Swedish. No problem. But the computer keeps restarting a few times a day without any notice. I had a look everywhere on every forum (almost) and read about this Zotob worm that turns your comp off all the time. So, from the microsoft web page i did the PC check thing, and it says it found nothing, but i downloaded the patch or something just in case, and it said it won't install because the language is in Swedish, and i only works in English. So firstly, do i have the worm thing?
I am using the Mozilla Firefox browser and aside from security/virus issues I also wanted this browser because somewhere along the line, I read somewhere that it had a spell checker.

I just worked on trying to set up the latest WHQL certified video card drivers for my nVidia Geforce FX 5200. The Installshield process comes up in FRENCH instead of English.

I live in Canada, so I am able to understand French and the install did install the English version of the drivers/files. How can I fix this, so it is back in English?
Some strange reason my windows wont install English United Kingdom as my regional locale it will change keyboard and everything else just not that. so when i install programs that do multi language it does arabic instead.

Please contact your systems Administrator" i am the admin i am thinking i may need to edit the registry but i am not experienced enough to be doing it.
Using WinXP and OE as the mail program.When in mail program and choose, Tools>Options>Spelling and the 3rd choice in the dialog boxlisted is languages. This is where the problem is. I don't have the choice of English to choose from, ONLY French is the single choice when thumbnail is clicked. This controls mychoices in spell checker.Does anyone know how I can get English back on here as a choice as we have no use for the French choices in using the spell checker.This PC came pre-loaded with WINxp and OE from Dell so we have no installation CD.
I have a valid installation of Windows XP Home in English with CD. I received "Uniblue Registry Booster 2010" in Spanish on a CD. if I install "Uniblue Registry Booster in Spanish on a Window XP platform that is in English, will the registry repair software be able to read the registry keys to repair/clean. Or must you have a Windows platform in Spanish for a registry repair/cleaner in Spanish.
I found that my XP (English version) is not able to put non-English characters in correct order, so that my Thai dictionary doesn't work properly.Here are some details.In Thai language, some vowels are on the left side of consonant, but when ordering those words with vowels on the left side, we don't consider the vowel is the first character, but XP does. I need to introduce 3 Thai characters in order to illustrate this problem more clearly.is the first consonant in Thai language, ข is the second, ไ is a vowel which is on the left side of consonant, such as ไก and ไข. Now we put these 2 consonants and 2 words in proper order,In the shop where I bought that dictionary, it works pretty well, but I didn't notice what system is was.
ok i am trying to format my hard drive and reintaling my windows XP b/c right now im running windows xp spanish and i want english.. so when i try to boot in the CD. i go into the windows setup blue screen. but from there it doesnt advance. what can i do?
I have a problem with accented characters. When I write myself, If I use Times New Roman all accented characters will be changed to some strange symbol. Even if I change the character with the dictionary program, it will automatically change back to the strange symbols. This problem I have overcome, by using ARIAL. The real problem is, that the e-mail I receive in aforeign language, it has the same strange characters. I have also installed on Oxford English-Spanish dictionary. Even the writing on this dictionary gets changed from the original characters. This is an example (DesesperaciÃ§n) the o gets changed into a Ã§. Or an Ã¨ gets also changed into Ã§. If I log into a non English WWW site, even on those pages it will change the accented characters to some strange simbols.
Some time ago I booted up my computer,to find that my XP switched to Windows classic style,I didn't take it seriously so I went to properties to change when I get an error message saying there is a problem with run32.dll,not only that,but the visual styles can't load I assume,becuase of run32.dll,so now I'm stuck with the piece of s*** style.
Last year I installed Windows XP on my pc. During the installation it ask me to choose ntsf or fat 32. I made a mistake I think and chose ntsf. I know the system was fat 32 when I bought it with Windows ME installed. This computer has not worked well since I did the new install. Is it possible to change it back to fat 32 or do I need to do a new install?
I have purchased a new laptop (my old one died) and now find that it is called "Bond & Bond", the name of the retail outlet. I changed the system name to mine but still all the drive paths have Bond & Bond in them. I do not want the retailers name on my computer forever.
