    I recently got a computer with Windows 7 Professional (64, SP1) pre-installed. It's in Swedish, but I'd prefer English. After doing some research I gleaned that I cannot use Windows Update to get the job done, as that is only an option in other versions of Win7. So I tried Vistalizator. It seemed to do the job fine, but when it came time to change the language I was prompted that I needed 2 updates to Windows. I did so but the second one wasn't recognized/didn't take. I uninstalled it, did it again. Same thing. So I'm getting nowhere using Vistalizator.

    Is there any other method where I can get an English MUI to run?

    I appreciate any advice. Thank you.

    You might not like this answer but I think it might be the only way solution.
    Select the anytime upgrade and pay for Windows 7 Ultimate. Then you will be able to change the language by installing language packs.

    I'm not even sure if the anytime upgrade offer still exists! I'm not getting any good links for it.
