I had a recent issue with a re-direction problem in IE & Firefox. I ended up doing a full restore. That has worked really well and I'm back in business.... with one exception. A few of Windows screens are in Slovak ( at least Google translate is telling me that). In the control panel 3 icons have that generic icon and the tags are in Slovak. They are 'Wireless Network', 'Network setup Wizard' and 'Device manager' (again if Google is translating correctly... but it sounds about right). If I go into System just the Hardware tab & it's screens are in Slovak. Also some messages like when I go to download something that little screen (save/cancel) is also not in English.
I have never installed any MUI's in windows. I did enough reading on on the web to find the C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\MUI directory and sure enough there are sub-directories for 0409 (English) 0424(Slovak) & 041b (Slovenian).
I have gone into the regional & languages settings and reset it a few times ( I flipped between US English & Canadian English.... I think I understand those of you from the U.S.A.
). But that doesn't seem to do the trick.
I did see some references on the web about some language installs being "localized" and some relation to unicode??
Googling "uninstall MUI language XP" and other variations are not leading me to anything obvious.
Oh.... Dell dimension 5150, Windows XP home edition, McAfee anti-virus (urggg!)
Thanks in advance!
