    I am running windows Vista Ultimate x32. i Recently re-formatted my computer and now i am trying to update to Service pack 1 (as i have just purchased Microsoft Office 2010, which needs SP1 & SP2 to run) I have tried numerous times through windows update however it says it has installed but does not actually install. I also installed all other option updates listed under Windows Vista, and then tried again to install SP1, which did not work.
    So i have downloaded the service pack manually and when i tried to install it i got the following message:
    "Windows Vista Service Pack 1 could not be installed because the language of windows vista you have installed is not supported or you have installed a language pack that is not supported. Windows Service Pack 1 can only be installed on computers the English, French, German, Japanese and Spanish versions of windows vista or computers running only those languages.

    As i said i recently formatted my computer and i am sure i installed the english version (especially as i am seeing everything in english) however i am not sure how to check or how to check if i have accidently installed some other language pack that could be effecting it.
    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    Have a look in Control Panel > Programs & Features which lists all the software you or the PC manufacturer have installed.
