You need to change regional settings from US to UK...

Thanks, but I have already tried that.

Any other suggestions?

What version of windows are you running?

You may not have changed all of them, Regional and language options in control panel select languages tab, select details and change settings there...

As a general note for future reference, it is good practice to choose UK English and delete US English - as well as changing the Advanced settings - when the option becomes available during the Windows XP Setup procedure.

Then disable the Language Bar from its toolbar icon once Windows is up and running.
