Windows 7: sometimes incorrect language

23 Jan 2010   #1

windows 7
sometimes incorrect language

Im an xpat living in Bangkok, and recently bought a laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium. Its genuine windows and is in English, however sometimes when i install applications they default to Thai Langauge. It had happened with these two apps so far, VLC Player and KM player (KM player the worst, kind find the setting to change it back!)

In the regional settings I have everything set up for English and location as the UK.

I saw this thread when searching: Change your Windows 7 language w/o having ultimate!

however, is this relevent to me, seeing as though windows is already in English? I don't want to go messing and installing stuff if i dont have to. I like to keep my registry tidy

Thanks for any help

oh and just to add, I presume I already have MUI packs installed, as I can change the language to Thia when my girlfreind wants to email her palls. So I'm not sure if that Vistalizator is relevant in this situation.
