    I have set the language to English and keyboard is English (US) but the cursor always types from right to left. I dont know how to fix this. I bought this computer in the UAE so somewhere some setting is set to Arabic but I dont know which one? It is using Windows Seven Home Basic.

    Look in the paragraph settings in word. Is word the only place this is happening?

    No its the same in Excel and others as well....The same problem is there with Office 2010 starter pack that came with it. I fixed it temporarily by switching the paragraph alignment to right which changes it back again to left..but I was looking for a more permanent solution which encompasses other apps as well.
