    I was doing a crossword puzzle online and all of the sudden a couple of windows flashed across the screen and the language changed from all English to a mixed English and Arabic (I believe). The menu bar at top of screen is gone too. HELP!

    Press the Windows flag key + R and in the Run open field type: intl.cpl (press enter)
    Check that the drop down box under “Format: English” is set to “Match Windows Display language (recommended)"

    I would be a little leery that something malicious may have been installed on the computer to cause this unwanted change. You may want to update and run any AV and or anti-malware programs you may have installed.
