I have a PC, XP OS, plenty of RAM and HD space, etc.

Yesterday, I updated my Office 2003 with Office 2007. Today, while sending email messages and using Spell Check, I learn that I have the French Dictionary (only) option installed and cannot seem to be able to change it. Note: French is the only language option available.

MS Word is set to/for English. All the other options for language point to English. I uninstalled Office 2007 and reinstalled it. I downloaded the updates for MS Office as well as the Language Packet, SP1.

I am now frustrated.
