Windows 7: Problem after installing language pack

Problem after installing language pack

Good afternoon,

I'm looking for help, because i've been looking around for a solution for my problem (without it being re-install the windows) but still found nothing.

My problem begins with a notebook from a friend with a 1GB of ram. I've downloaded a windows 7 micro so i could install a lighter version of windows 7, so it would be faster.
1º Problem: My friend doesn't understand english very well, and windows 7 micro in portuguese are non-existent, and language pack adding is removed so i can't install it by windows update.
Solution: i've downloaded rtse7en, inserted a PT language pack, official from microsoft, and voilá, a windows 7 micro with PT.
2º Problem: Installed windows in english by default, works perfectly. Went to languages, PT is available, changed for PT, reboot, and everything seems perfect, in portuguese. And then starts the problems.
Went to the advanced system properties, so i could remove all graphic-excess, and it simply doesn't open. When clicked on, the mouse appears with the thinking circle for 1 or 2 seconds, and then returns to normal, and no window with the properties. In control panel most of the options also don't open, including the language options, so i can't return to english.
So, i'm trying to put PT working. I don't really want to re-install, because i'll need to turn it into PT anyway, so it'll probably give me the same problems with another install.

So, i'm open to suggestions, so shoot away, because i really need to put this working....

Thanks in advance!

*EDIT* On a second thought, after seing the other sub-foruns, maybe this is more suited to the sub-forum Performance and Maintenance. If any moderator reads this, feel free to change it.
