I have a slight problem which is that i bought a computer in Spain and so Windows XP came in Spanish, there was no installation CD, Windows installed itself from the hard drive, and i wasn't given any option as to the language i wanted Windows to be in. Everything is in Spanish and i do not know how to change it to English, all that i seem to be able to change are regional settings which don't affect at all the operating system display language. It's all in Spanish. I was wondering whether there was a way to change the language without having to reinstall Windows XP. And if i do have to reinstall Windows XP, how do i do so, because i was never given a CD to install from and so i wouldn't know how to do it from the hard drive. Is there anything i can do. I need help. Please. Thank you

I've already read that article and all it says is how to add different language keyboards, nothing about the whole of windows. If you see at http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documen...ff_mul_xjgd.asp and go to windows xp professional language versions, there are three different kinds and the one i have is the Localized Language Versions of Windows XP Professional, and i am trying to change it to the Localized Language Versions of Windows XP Professional. Is this possible?
