Windows 7: Language Change & Start Screen Problem

Language Change & Start Screen Problem

Well, I have Windows 7 Ultimate, 32-bit. Here's the problem. As I speak and read various languages, most fluently Chinese, English, Swedish; I messed with the new language changing feature in Ultimate. I changed from Chinese to English, everything went perfectly smooth, it was all translated except for one thing. The start screen where you log in. The bar under your profile picture which should say password in English says
"密码" in simplified Chinese. Then when I do enter the password, the "logging in" is also in simplified Chinese. Also, some things in some programs, such as IE 7 and the current typing language on the lower right corner is in a weird font. It's still in that Chinese looking english font. Very weird.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

E

Check this post out. Point (3) tells you how to change the language in Welcome, logon and logout screens.
