How do I change the language for certain folders?

I had bought a laptop from an Arabic country. I know how to change the default language by going to Region and Languages, I already fixed that. However, there is a certain file in C://Users that is still in Arabic! I can open this folder but I cannot rename it in English. Could someone please help me fix this? Thank you!
(Windows 7 btw)

It would be the desktop.ini file located within, it is hidden by default.

You you can either edit the desktop.ini file, or delete it. Assuming it is the problem.
I honestly, would blow the whole installation away and start over with a fresh install.

Are these folders for language packs?
Cleaning up my storage drive, I've spotted this folder. Are these language pack folders? I have no memory of ever installing a language pack, and now wonder how the devil they got on the storage drive, and not on the OS drive.
