Windows 7: No text in Network Connections

No text in Network Connections

When I go to
Control Panel>Network and Internet>Network and Sharing Center>Change adapter settings
all texts appear to be missing (see screenshots), and none of them (except the last one) do anything. The last option opens this warning:

To me, this seems like a broken translation of windows (Windows 7 Home - SK).

How can I change the adapter settings (static IP)?
I've tried Portforward Static IP Address (Free Help Forwarding Ports - PortForward.com), but it sets weird values instead of the ones I enter.

Problem is only in network center->adapter settings?

Left click once on the adapter you want to change. Now press ALT-ENTER. Adapter properties are displayed?

I haven't noticed the problem anywhere else.

When I press ALT+ENTER, the empty warning appears, just like when I click on the last option.

alt+enter means properties... so indeed last option.

Check eventlog for related errors

Why modify it? Don't you want to solve the main issue?

I want to get to the settings of that adapter, which implies fixing the main issue.

I elevated command prompt:
With Netsh.exe you can easily view your TCP/IP settings.
Code:
netsh interface ip show config
With Netsh.exe, you can easily configure your computer's IP address and other TCP/IP related settings. For example:
The following command configures the interface named "Pripojenie bezdrôtovej siete" with the static IP address 192.168.0.100, the subnet mask of 255.255.255.0, and a default gateway of 192.168.0.1:
Code:
netsh interface ip set address name="Pripojenie bezdrôtovej siete" static 192.168.0.100 255.255.255.0 192.168.0.1
To revert back to how it was
Code:
netsh interface ip set address "Pripojenie bezdrôtovej siete" dhcp
