    Hi,

    I'm having trouble opening my home page in an English version. I was messing around with Windows a few weeks back trying to install Chinese on MS Word and it's after changing a few things on Windows. For example, when I open IE6, my home page which is Google is in Chinese. I've reset my home page to google.ie in English on numerous occasions but it keeps reverting back to Chinese.

    Also, when I click on the clock in the taskbar, the months appear in Chinese characters. Now, I had been fiddling with the settings and had added Chinese as one of the languages but removed it so it must be this that made the dates change into Chinese. How can I get them back into English. This isn't my computer - that's the main reason I'd like to get it back into English.

    God bless,

    Phil.

    Sorted it out. Control Panel>Regional and Language Options>English (Ireland) as opposed to Chinese.
