Windows 7: language change due to reboot

language change due to reboot

I bought my Asus laptop not too long ago but have somehow caught spyware so I decided to just reboot it from factory settings but the language seems to have changed. The original setting was in English but it has now changed to Spanish and I can't get it to switch back. I'm not sure how this happened. Whether I accidentally clicked a button during the reboot sequence to have the language switched, I'm not too sure. All I know now is I'm stumped on how to change it back. I've tried rebooting it again but it doesn't seem to want to change back to english anymore and I am stuck on a language I can hardly understand. Since I don't have a CD or anything to boot from besides what is already on the HD, I'm stumped on how I can fix this. Any ideas? Has this happened to someone before? Any help is much appreciated
