Windows 7: Fonts are being displayed in Chinese

Fonts are being displayed in Chinese

I'm having an issue that I cannot figure out how to resolve.

When I'm installing programs, such as Adobe Reader or Flash, the text being displayed by the installer is in Chinese, but not all of it. Also, i noticed that after installing MS Office, the default font is set to a Chinese font.

Why is this happening and how can I resolve it? Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Wes Cooper

Never mind, I figured out the issue.

For anyone else having this issue, here is how i resolved the problem:

Under Control Panel, select "Region and Language" and go to the "Administrative" tab.
Select "Change system locale" and select the appropriate region. Reboot and this should resolve the issue.
