WinXP Home Edition - Changing language

  eddielister 11:31 10 Nov 2004

Evening all, glad I have stumbled on this site. Lots of useful info here.

Can anyone help with the following?

I am English but have just bought a PC in France (where I live some of the time) assuming that I could change the pre-installed winxp language to English. However, although I have been through the motions, and it now says EN at the bottom, everything is still in French!

I have also tried control panel, Regional & language options, Languages tab but there is nothing obvious there.

Is there any way I can get this "Edition Familiale" to work in English, or do I have to pay for a language pack. If so, where do I get them from?

The Microsoft site is most unhelpful!

Thanks in advance,
