    hey iam on a dell inspiron 6000 (gifted from a friend, and its an ireland make) however when i first booted this laptop everything showed up perfectly in english.

    its been 1.5 yrs now.. recently i had a hard reboot and cfc did some serious file dumps before starting xp and once xp loaded after that my entire documentsandsettings/user profile was wiped out and i noticed that i have some icons in the control panel etc and system dialogue boxes (file properties boxes etc) in a foreign language although i have selected English-US in the regional settings why so ?

    does it have any connection with the WMI service ? it doesnt start because the path is set to the system32/wbem directory whilst the actual files are in windows/wbem ? (i guess it was in system32/wbem before that horrible crash.. since there are some 4-5 files lying there but not all of them), probably i can add the path of the new location of wbem in the environment variables and then would work, but why is it there and the services.msc tries to start it from the windows/system32/wbem folder ?

    90% of the system shows english language it just in certain areas that it shows the foreign language.

    iam on Windows XP SP2, and i have scanned my pc for viruses and i dont have any.
