Windows 7: Corrupt Language Pack

I certainly don't want to come across as the "know it all" you referred to, but in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 which I recommended no less than five times in this thread, there is this step when setting up Win7:

12. Don't let any programs write themselves into msconfig>Startup as they slow startup, become freeloaders on your RAM/CPU, can spy on you and cause conflicts.

● As illustrated in Startup Programs - Change uncheck everything except AV, gadgets (aka "sidebar"), Sync program in msconfig>Startup.

● Then after reboots do the same in msconfig>Services after checking "Hide All MS Services."

● Check back with both lists periodically to see if anything writes itself back in, turn it off in its Program Preferences.

● If you have any questions about a listing, Google it to learn what it does.

● However I would not install Google programs which are relentless spyware. Only use the stable Google search box in your browser and don't stay signed into any Google web apps.

● Avoid spyware tracking cookies placing interest ads by Opting Out of Network Advertising.

● The most important thing you can do to avoid spyware creeping in is to watch your program installs like a hawk at every step because programs have found ingenious ways to sneak in spyware with tricky checkbox choices, even in the License Agreement. I always do a Custom install and only allow the features I know I want, later removing any extra in Control Panel>Change.

● Keep an eye also on your Browser Add-Ons to only allow the ones you know you want or are required to make a page display correctly, including Flash, Shockwave, WMP or Quicktime plug-in, Silverlight.
Even if you don't plan to Clean Reinstall, you'll benefit by the tools and methods given.

Win 7-64

It seems my travails just keep getting worse and worse. In the past two days I have managed to reduce two perfectly fine computers to Barney Rubble.

1) On the other computer where the Language Bar was actually working, I managed to forget my rather arcane password (backed up everything else but the password).

So I used a program that allowed me to delete the password completely. Worked perfectly and effortlessly.
Reset Windows Password - Reset Administrator Password for Windows 8, 7, Vista, XP, 2008, 2003, 2000

When the screen comes up that asks you which accounts to delete passwords on, I selected both the AV (name of the computer) and Administrator.

Now what I've got is Two Separate Accounts. When the computer boots up the Win 7 Welcome Screen has two choices: Administrator or AV. All the settings are scrambled. That's the only way I can say it.

Travail #2
I did a reinstall on the computer where the Language Bar was not working. Took screenshots of everything, so things went pretty smoothly.

Now I'm getting a warning in Win 7: "Optional Fan #2 Running 1130 rpm". Geez, I have never encountered that one before and therefore have no clue how to fix it.

I took the case off and all the fans are spinning nicely. Yes, I know. It's time to get down on my hands and knees and find out exactly which fan it is.

Could this be a false alert though?

1130 is about normal. Give this little program a try.

Layback Bear, please forgive my not having reported back. As I expected, that was a false report, either from the mobo or from the ASUS software. All I did was switch the fan power to a different connector (not on the mobo) and No More RPM Warning plus the fan is humming along appropriately.

Although I have tons of utilities to monitor such things, I will certainly take a look at the one you recommended. As always, Thanks! ++++ Oh silly me. I have that program. And, yes, it is the default best out there.

One thing: On many forums I have met some serious @$$holes who are eager to put me down or tell me that I just can't learn something. On another forum just recently I was told to stay away from Gpedit, that it was just too complicated for me to understand. I thanked the guy for his fatherly advice.

I really do appreciate you, gregrocker and kari for not being like that. It's been my experience that people who are really secure in their knowledge don't engage in chest-pounding.

I surely do appreciate all your assistance and I most definitely respect all of you! :)
