    1) If you have Vista Ultimate, download the English language MUI to change the base OS language.

    2) If you do not have Vista Ultimate you need to purchase the upgrade to this version and then do as previously mentioned.

    3) Purchase an English language version of Vista and do a clean install removing the spanish language version.

    You can't simply change the base OS language without either clean installing the preferred language or using an MUI which is only available to users of Ultimate.

    Look at your Windows Updates optional updates. If your version is eligible, you can download and install the language pack there.

    Then, go to Regional and Language Options to make your changes.
