Change language?

Heyy everyone, my first proper post on SF

Im posting this for a friend!

So my friend bought this Compaq Mini CQ10 laptop/netbook over in spain, and bought it over to the UK.
When he got it home and first time booted he noticed it was in Spanish, with Spanish keyboard.

So my question is, can i change it from Spanish to English? its running Windows 7 Starter.

Thanks for any help/tips in advanced!
Daniel =)

All sorted!
Used the program Derekimo suggested and it worked perfect!
There was still some spanish on there, but that was only the re installed programs, bloatware and stuff.

Friend was well happy, got 20 out of it too, goes towards the iPod!

Thanks again,
Daniel =)
