    Purchased a PC that was supposed to have English content. Turns-out certain apps are in Spanish, most of which I have been able to correct. My
    biggest problem though is MS Internet Explorer 6. The browser is in Spanish, and while I was successfully able to download the English version, I get a program warning suggestion that while I could go ahead and install the IE6, I should remove the Spanish version first from "Add/Remove".

    Since "Add/Remove" is part of the browser, it too is in Spanish.
    When I go to remove the program, it doesn't offer the two options as its offered in the English version- "Remove or Cancel", but basically something that indicates (loose translation I think!) "Repair or " Replace" with a previous version (which I believe there was- in English, prior to the Spanish replacement but I'm not certain)

    My question is, since there isn't a clear choice, should I attempt "Repair" or
    "Restore-I don't want this to end-up a total reinstallation of W2K all because of a browser issue!

    Any and all suggests would be genuinely appreciated- thank you!
