    XP-SP2 + all current updates

    Short Date Display has changed - without intentional intervention on my part
    • from 11/07/2007
    • to 07/11/2007
    The change is
    • from United States (my normal setting)
    • to International English, Latin America, and much of Europe.

    The change occurred in
    • Windows Explorer
    • Office 2003 programs (Word. Excel, Outlook)
    • Command Prompt

    The following Registry settings are correct:
    • HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\International registry subkey\sShortDate = M/d/yyyy
    • HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\International registry subkey\sLongDate = dddd, MMMM dd, yyyy
    • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\International\iCountry = 001 [ Note: 001 = USA ]
    • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\International\sCountry = United States

    What / where / how do I fix this?
