Windows 7: Win 32 WINRAR zip files are in arabic

Win 32 WINRAR zip files are in arabic

I have sent 2 screen shots in the attachments. I have not changed (that I'm aware of) anything that would change the text to Arabic. I have tried to go in and change in the region and language but its not working. Last time I even looked at the zip files they were in English.
I run McAfee for my virus protection and come up with no viruses.
I run Win 7 ultimate 32 bit operating system
I just want the Arabic OFF my computer. Any help would be great!!!!!
Thank you!!!!!

Does anyone else have access to your computer who may have changed the language settings as a joke? Obviously your WinRAR is set to Arabic.

If you can't figure out where the language setting is (take a look at screenshots for the settings in English and go from there), I'd just uninstall WinRAR completely (make sure settings are removed too - not sure how WinRAR handles that) and do a fresh install. Good luck.

WinRar

Thanks for getting back to me on that I've already going to lay with you and check everything is in English if I uninstall the WinRAR will that also get rid of my zip files that I also? I haven't looked at my zip files for so long and I don't know what made me go in there and everything was changed nobody goes on my computer but me and my husband and trust me he doesn't have to change anything in it it couldn't be a virus could it?

Uninstalling WinRAR won't delete your ZIP files unless you saved them in the WinRAR folder and delete that too.

Before uninstalling, try the following:

+ Make sure WinRAR is not running.
+ Locate and delete the file "winrar.lng" which is in the WinRAR program folder: C:\Program Files\WinRAR or C:\Program Files (x86)\WinRAR
+ Restart WinRAR which should now be in English (if not you will have to reinstall)

Also what I did not know before this is that the language depends on the installer - this means you downloaded and installed an Arabic version of WinRAR.
