My mate has got a new netbook but has put German as the default language not english before the pc computeruser name and password.

I have been told that it cannot be altered we have to set it up in German leave the password blank then alter in the normal way but it will be all in German so might be a bit tricky.

Can it be altered before we progress any further or do we have to carry on and change it later if so what would be the quickest way to change the language.

Thanks

Hi Lance

Its Windows 7 starter I have tried change system locale but it does not go to the same drop down box as on my Vista program which I can change the language with no problems.

I suspect Windows 7 starter only allows one language on start up after that you have purchase a language pack but not sure.

Can I go to a restore point before the German languge was selected?

As far as I can tell, Lance1 might be right and the only way you could go back is to purchase a language pack, at which point you'd have to upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate, which is the only one that allows you to switch around languages at will. There is some info here: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/products/compare

You could also try doing a clean install to see if that can help resolve your issue.
