Windows 7: how to read Russian without changing OS language

how to read Russian without changing OS language

hello. I bought new PC and Installed windows 7 ultimate x64. This is my first x64 and I encountered a problem reading Russian texts. I have english US set as OS language.

I googled a lot and everyone says the same: "In order to read Russian, change display language to Russian-Restart PC" I've did that and it works, BUT I don't want to change options and restart PC every time I encounter Russian texts! When I had x32 windows 7 Ultimate Installed I could read Russian texts with ease, without changing OS language and stuff.

Still, there are some texts that I can read in Russian, but some display weird Symbols. I think this happens because some Russian fonts are missing? If so where can I download them?

Here are the attachments.
This is the same program I try to install.
1)This is what I can see when I run it.
2)when I press X(cancel) Russian is displayed perfectly.

P.S This program IS NOT the only one with such "weird symbol" Issue.

Please help.

Open Windows Update, click on the link for "Optional Updates". You'll find the Russian Language Pack there somewhere.

Do I need Ultimate for Russian language input?
Just like the title says, would I need to buy the Ultimate edition to keep the option for Russian language input? Or does language pack simply make the whole UI in another language? Thanks
