How did my father manage to change the language in Win 7 Home Premium?
I've got yet another language question but I think its slightly different the usual!
My father bought a recon Asus laptop with Win 7 Home Premium installed in english. His wife is Colombian and at some point has managed to change the language to spanish. Now, we cannot change it back to english!
I understand that you need Win 7 Ultimate to change languages, so my question is how did she manage to change the language in the first place?!
(My guess is that when Win 7 HP is installed, it lets you set the language once so that one product can be sold in several countries.)
I understand that initially, she was getting the 'Windows in not genuine' warning, so it went back to the shop and they sorted that. Since then, she changed the language.
Assume that to change it back I need to use that Visualisator software?

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.
If you use the Vistalizator software, you will also lose the Activation and License for the installed Windows 7, which is why you got the Windows is not genuine warning so my advice is not to use Vistalizator.
Warning message when multilingual user interface (MUI) pack is installed in incorrect edition of Windows 7: "This copy of Windows is not genuine"
I can only assume she managed to change the display language for her own user profile. To change it back to English:
1. Go to Start>Control Panel>Clock>Language>Region/Change the display language.
2. Switch the display language in the Choose a display language drop-down menu.
3. Click OK.
4. Log off for the changes to take effect (This will affect only the user profile under which you are currently logged on).
