Working on an Inspiron 6000 laptop running WinXP MCE. It had over a hundred infections that have been taken care of. The remaining problem is that in some system screens, the text appears to be in arabic. I've checked the regional settings in control panel but find nothing wrong. Pics of what it looks like attached. Any ideas?
I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.
I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.
You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)
Do you have Office installed? Do you have the Language tool bar near your system tray? If not Right click the Taskbar and choose Toolbar, and put a check in Language Bar. Here you will have other options to toggle between 2 languages or to set it to one language.http://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f10/xp-partially-displaying-text-in-arabic-373473.html
I am trying to help a friend with his computer. Problem is he has a laptop running windows vista that is set up in arabic, that is the filenames, the settings options and everything appears in arabic. It is not just the keyboard input, which is set up to use different languages through the regional and language settings in the control panel. I dont understand arabic, so is there a way to make the computer start displaying everything in english so that I can see what going on, and then have a way to set it back to being arabic? When I say set it back to arabic, i mean the display language, the input language, the internet explorer window so that the x appears in the top left and not the top right.
how can i do that
click the start button, go to "كونترول بانل" (which is the control panel), then navigate to "كلك، لانغواج اند "رجين(which is the Clock, Language, and region), then go to "ريجينال اند لانغواج أبتينس" (which is regional and language options), a new window opens. click on the "ادمنستراسيون" (which is the administrative tab-or the last tab, 4th tab over), then click on the شنج سيستم لكل (which is change system locale), then your presented with the a drop down box, scroll down to : انجلش ( English if its presented like this, or English).
Hope this helps,
After cleaning out several viruses, a rogue security program and a TDSS rootkit, I have a few Windows programs that are being displayed with an Arabic font - mainly the Windows security center and wireless networking applets.

This is because the arab wirting starts from end to front, You need to change your keyboard setting to arab rather than english
Changing a Keyboard on a PC (Vista)
Click on your "Start" menu and choose "Control Panel." In "Control Panel," choose "Regional and Language Options."
Click on the "Keyboards and Languages" tab at the top of the window. Click the "Change Keyboards..." button.
With the "General" tab highlighted, click "Add" button to add Arabic to your language choices.
Choose Arabic from any country, making sure that the keyboard feature is also selected. Click "OK." Keyboards vary in some countries, but generally are uniform. This can easily be changed if needed.
In the Text Services and Input Languages window, click the "Language Bar" tab. If using Vista, click the radio button next to "Docked in the taskbar." Click "OK." Click "OK" again to complete the change.
Language Bar on VistaNow there should be a section of your taskbar devoted to the language bar. To switch the keyboard to Arabic, click on "EN" (which stands for English) and then click on "Arabic." Your keyboard is now ready to type in Arabic.

For starters, what operating system are you using?
I am trying to generate a list of possible options for names.As an example JohanJohan smithJohan JonesJohan kirschnerIs that possible?
You could use the =CONCATENATE() function or the & symbol to combine text.So with Johan in cell A1 in cell B1 you could do something like:=CONCATENATE(A1," Smith") just make sure you put a SPACE character before the name Smith, else the two names will be pushed together.A shorter version using the & symbol would be=A1&" Smith"If you wish to keep the names you have created,you will need to do a Copy / Paste / Values on column B,because as they are now, they are simply formulas, not names,MIKEhttp://www.skeptic.com/http://www.computing.net/answers/office/is-it-possible-to-insert-text-into-a-partially-filled-cell/20071.html

In my current studies I have to glean much data from the internet. Unfortunately much of the text is displayed right across my wide screen which makes reading difficult. Is there an easy way to adjust I.E. to format the text so that it displays in A4 or similar format. I know I can copy & paste to Word (Home & Student 2013) and get the result that way but it is time consuming and troublesome. I would be grateful for any help.
Usually a question is best answered when you ask it yourself. After playing with it I found that I could drag the right margin to the left and the text then compresses with it to any width needed while maintaining the same format.
When I am typing on my laptop, there is a delay when typing letters. Sometimes I have to go back and retype because the keyboard hesitates or displays letters in a delay mode. For example: if type "help" I may have typed the 4 characters but only see "he"

I sometimes get a text box that is behind regular text. I need to move it. One normally just selects a text box and drags, or cut and paste, it where one wants. However, when it is behind text, it can't be selected. I have found no way to select normal text and "send it behind."
How do I get to this text box that is behind my regular text? I've been told to "move the regular text out of the way, then you will be able to get to your text box." But the text box moves with text!

As per attached file, I am using the select tool to copy the text from the pdf then paste it in word.
But the pasted text doesn't show in Arabic as per the .pdf file.
I've tried all the fonts available with no success.
Any help will be most appreciated.
It won't , unless you have the arabic fonts on your computer for word to use
That is why PDF is sused as it doesn't require the user to have the fonts on their computer
Think of a PDF as a photograph of a page and you will get the idea
the language bar in the taskbar is disappered although it's enabled on the regional settings and the arabic language is installed but I can't type or change the keyboard to any other languages
Take a look at the following Tutorial (and its related links): Keyboard Input Language
I have a form where two languages be entered at the same time, I have got the words and text entered in english and arabic , but when it comes to numbers and dates , it just stays as english . I tried through the control panel and change the neccassary but still the numbers stays english. If I completely in the control panel changed to arabic, all the english date and numbers are in arabic.
Is there a way that when pressing the ALT SHIFT the numerical also change to arabic ( text is fine in arabic ).
First, what program are you using?
it happens when you dont have an arabic font installed and selected as your text style. For example, if your default font is Times and you switch to arabic keyboard, it will let you type arabic but won't type the arabic numerals.
if you are typing in word, try to change over to an arabic font (not Adobe Arabic).
P.S. you will be able to type english numbers when you switch the keyboard to english and your font is an arabic font.

You can still change the keyboard to write in Arabic. Whether or not you can read Arabic, I dunno But the OS isn't available in Arabic per this statement
*Note: If you used the Hindi or Arabic language versions of the Beta, thank you for helping us test those languages. Because the RC is not available in Hindi or Arabic, we encourage you to either install Windows 7 RC in another language or reinstall a prior version of Windows before the Beta expires on August 1, 2009.

Hello darknight99 and welcome to Seven Forums.
My first guess would be your computer picked up some malware. Update and run a full scan with your resident antivirus and antispyware. Then run a couple of on-demand scanners (all free) like Malwarebytes, HitmanPro, SuperAntispyware, Comodo Cleaning Essentials, etc. On-demand scanners offer another layer of security because there's no such thing as an antimalware product that's 100% effective 100% of the time. If there was such a thing we'd all be using it.

Hi all you savvy experts,
I recently bought a Toshiba Laptop in Saudi Arabia. It came pre-installed with an Arabic version of windows 7.
I have managed to change most of the language options to English under the control panel, but the core of windows is still Arabic, I see this with the welcome message in the beginning and some install/uninstall and error messages.
After contacting Microsoft support, they said that I should contact the manufacturer (Toshiba) and ask for a new OS in English.
Can anyone help me?
As far as I know you have two options:
1/try to order original recovery installation disc on https://backupmedia.toshiba.eu/landing.aspx
2/you must install own OS version using original Microsoft installation disc
If you use option 2 you must buy Microsoft disc and pay valid licence for it. All necessary drivers, tools and utilities you can download from Toshiba download page http://www.toshibamea.com/en/Download-Files

Hello, I have a bit of a strange problem with my HP Pavilion notebook which I find a little irritating, Instead of surfing using my Administrator account, for security reasons I created a standard user account for run of the mill tasks, which would be fine, apart from the fact that any google listing that appears on my screen comes along with what seems to be some kind of Arabic translation, and also the listings are indented from the right hand side instead of the left, this problem does not occur with my administrator account, also when I switch between my administrator and user accounts I have to disconnect the USB mouse and re-connect it before it will work. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
OK, I've got an update on this problem: As far as the Arabic bit goes, it seems to be a Opera problem (does not occur using Firefox). As for the problem with the mouse locking up after changing users, I found a (Fix)!!! the fix goes: if it is an HP laptop/notebook this is caused by the hpqwmiex.exe service, if you disable the service from msconfig the problem disappears, this does not work, it is easier just to disconnect/reconnect the mouse when changing users, bye the way the track pad us unaffected by this problem!.http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/364453/arabic-translations-on-web-searches/

what do i do?
I hope this might help you..
You have to add additional editing language... as shown here
I just installed the Arabic keyboard through the Control Panel->Keyboard settings.
Arabic is written right to left unlike English. When writing on Microsoft word, the letters were written in the correct order, but the words are not being place in the correct order i.e. the next word is being placed to the right of the previous word when it should be on the left. The cursor is the correct type for right to left typing.
Any help to fix this would be appreciated.
1. Go to "Word Options"
2. Popular > Language Settings
3. Select your preferred language, click "Add" to add Arabic
4. Change your "Primary Editing Languge" to Arabic
5. Restart MS Word.
BTW, what version of Office you use?
Where can I find vista SP1 for Arabic language ???
I read it will be available on April 9th .

I have sent 2 screen shots in the attachments. I have not changed (that I'm aware of) anything that would change the text to Arabic. I have tried to go in and change in the region and language but its not working. Last time I even looked at the zip files they were in English.
I run McAfee for my virus protection and come up with no viruses.
I run Win 7 ultimate 32 bit operating system
I just want the Arabic OFF my computer. Any help would be great!!!!!

Sometimes just clearing out all your cookies and Temporary Internet Files helps clear things up. Give that a try. It certainly won't hurt.
You could also type http://www.google.com/en and put it in your favorites. Then you don't have to type it out.
My computer doesn’t support the Arabic language he on the soft ware although I have the Arabic feature on my computer
Multilingual User Interface (MUI) are packages from Microsoft for Microsoft Windows and Microsoft Office applications that allow for the installation of multiple interface languages on a single system.
I am trying to get the Arabic Phonetic keyboard, but I was not able to find it. Is it pre-installed in Windows 7, or do I need to install it? If so, does anyone know of any links for installation?
Found a possible site that may help, If you use the Fontboard Arabic Keyboard
Hope this helps.

XP and vista had keyboard layouts for arabic + digits, so you could use the hindi digits.
It seems in w7, you can only choose arabic 101 without digits, no matter which country you choose, so there's no way for me to type the hindi digits like

what to do??? Where is this layout so I can have arabic characters and hindi digits?

I am currently having a problem entering Arabic names and numbers into my contact database on Salesforce. I have tried to solve it using Salesforce's suggestions but have not succeeded. Their suggestions included:
Unicode 8 and 16: Although I had originally used 16bit and the problem remained.
Any other suggestions still end up with an issue regarding unicode. However, I have tried using both 8 and 16 and nothing works. Thus far, Salesforce have not been helpful so I would greatly appreciate any help here.
A friend of mine has Windows XP SP2. But its in arabic. Is there anyway to convert it into English. We tried going to Control Panel and Language Options but no English was available there.

I'm running Windows 7 on a five-year old Dell Dimension E520. Because of my work I'm using MS Word 97-2003. (Don't ask!) I write in English, but have Italian and French installed to toggle occasionally. I never installed Arabic. BUT as soon as I type the keyboard flips to Arabic. I change it back, it flips again. I'm going insane. In Control Panel/Languages, etc. it only shows EN, IT, and FR as installed. BUT on the toolbar, lower right corner it shows EN, IT, FR, and AR. I can't get rid of it. I can't remove it from Control Panel/Languages, etc. because it isn't listed. I've run avast anti-virus, and two malware scans, malwarebytes and super-antispyware. Nothing shows up. Anyone, I would appreciate any help possible. Thanking you in advance
What is your Windows location?
I am new ti the forum hope someone can help me out with my problem.
I have an application which will toggle between Arabic and English keyboard layouts as necessary.
Things are fine up to Windows 98. But with Windows2000 and with XP it is not switching from English to Arabic automatically but From Arabic it comes to English Automatically. Can you suggest any solutions ?
Note: When I install Hebrew Keyboard layout, the same application toggling between English and Hebrew
without any trouble. Please also note that the application doesn't use Windows API.
Hey guys, I got it done thru a short cut, dont worry about this anymore.
Hey there, I was hoping you guys could help me out real quick. I just installed Windows 7 Professional yesterday and after enabling Arabic as a second language it only lets me type the characters "عربية" and not the letters "1234" I got it setup so it does allow typing of the numbers in Arabic in office as well, but if i copy it into another program such as firefox or IE, they turn back into English numbers.
here are some screen shots as to what happens:

Hello, When I change users on my HP Pavilion notebook and then do a google search, my listings comes along with an Arabic (or some other eastern language) translation, which I don't really want, also the google listings page is indented from the right instead of the left, this I have found seems to be an Opera problem as it does not occur using Firefox (see my post in the Vista forum! yes, I posted in the wrong place), this does not occur using my administrator account.
Thanks in advance for any help.

Just restored a clients machine to a previous restore point, cleaned everything up (virus/malware wise).Only problem I'm having now is some of the elements within windows are displayed in a different language.. I'm guessing Arabic. Already checked Regional/Lang settings, checked HKLM\Sys\CS001\Cont\Nls\Language tooOnly certain items in the CP and various dialogs are in Arabic:How do you fix this??? I believe its keeping me from installing SP3 on this machine as well...
My gut reaction was 'lol' at that screen shot; I've never actually seen the Arabic language pack in use. This was from a malware infection?? But let's address your problem, shall we?
First, let's start off by going into detail about your 'Regional and Language Options'. Was the regional options set to English? In the 'Language' tab, is the 'Text Services and Input Languages' option set to English as well?
Also, are you able to use a Win XP installation CD to repair Windows? If I'm not mistaken, there is an option to select your default Regional Settings there as well. Post back here with more details! Good luck. =)
Hi I have a new computer with the following details:
With Windows 7
The layout of the keyboard is different and the usual place of key for the letter 'Thaal' (which used to be on the left of the number 1) is no longer there. On the keyboard the 'Thaal' is now printed on the other side beneath the 'Daal' but when I try to type it, I only get a backslash.
There are two keyboard layouts installed on the computer but neither of work, I only get a backslash.
Is there a keyboard layout available which is compatible with the key layout on this computer, that I can download?
Thank you for your help
Notebooks are country specific products and offered keyboard is compatible with preinstalled OS for certain region. Described problem is pretty specific so maybe you should contact Toshiba service and ask for explanation.

I have a user working on Word 2000 in Windows 98SE.
Her Word seems to have arabic options installed. These screw up her bullets and other symbols, as well as her dictionary and auto-correction. I don't know how the arabic stuff got there and she doesn't need them.
I haven't found any way to uninstall this option. I've looked in the menus and I've tried unistalling and reinstalling Word (but not Office), but it didn't work.
Does anyone have an idea for how I can get rid of this without reinstalling Office completely?

Please help. It's impossible to navigate these symbols!
Hello cbbi and welcome to TSF,
When you say you've set all languages to English, are you sure you've set the Display Language aswell? If you've done so, most likely your install is corrupted by a malware/virus.
Please try to boot the machine into Safemode (Press F8 during startup) and see if the problem persists in there.
If you can start an administrator Command prompt (Start > Search > type "cmd" > Rightclick "cmd.exe " > Run as administrator) you could try to run a system files check and see if that clears it up, simply type in:
Also try restoring the system to a previously known working restore point (Start > Search > type "rstrui" > Hit ENTER).
Let us know if any faults occur and how you get along.

i installed the extra language modules in windows vista so i can type in arabic.
now, everything works fine, except for the numeric part of my keyboard. I
can't get it to type arabic numbers. It always gives me the western numbers.
It's very strange, cos a friend of mine actually did the same, and he actually CAN type arabic numbers.

I am looking for MS word 2007 tutorial in Arabic language, all links from google search were broken.
Is there a way to change the default font size of the Arabic font of choice in IE? I see where I can choose which font, but I don't see an option for its size, other than changing all fonts. Roman letters appear much larger than Arabic and to enlarge all to accomodate Arabic makes the Roman letters huge!
The alternative might be to locate an Arabic font that is inherently larger and add that to the list of options, but I don't know what font that would be nor how to add it to the list in IE8.
There has to be a way. Anyone have suggestions?
Thanks a million!
I clicked something and was greeted by malware that created https popups in Explorer. Below are the my attempts to correct.
1. Deleted the new programs from the change and remove programs.
2. Ran Mcafee - nothing noted
3. continued to get popups
4. deleted directories with same name "tool bars and extensions"
5. continued to get popups
6. downloaded Malwarebytes and found several pups and quarantined all.
8. No longer can i log in, language seems to be Arabic.
9. I tried to refresh but would not work- it made me log in. this is where i noticed that the language was set to ARABIC 2.
The computer boots fine, I cant read the language and my password does not work.
Would a restore to a restore point reset the langauge? Is there any way to recover this PC?
The computer is a Lenovo laptop, running windows 8.1.

The default language in the control panel is already in English. The location is USA. The desktop is in English. But browsing is all in Arabic. I don't want it to translate...I want all the browsing to be in English. HELP!
In chrome check Settings > Advanced Settings > Languages (or their Arabic equivalents).
In IE - Internet Options > General > Languages.

English to remain as system language.
Does Premium lack arabic fonts? Appreciate some guidance please.

How to Display Arabic Font On Windows 7 - Learn Arabic on al3arabiya.org
Hi all, just 2 weeks back i've come across a new problem in Word2000. I've a friend try to change the font sizes in Word 2000 when using Arabic Fonts. But she is unable to do that. But if she were to try changing the Arabic Fonts size in Excel 2000, she will be able to do that. I've tried logging on as another user id (Windows 2000) but the problem persist.
Have also tried to repair office, un-install/re-install office, re-create a new profile for her, but nothing seems to work.
I have a lot of vocabulary translated from English to Arabic and saved in word files. Up until now I was using MS Office 2007 but after the update to version 2013 the arabic words became disordered. I will give you an example with an english word- instead "faction" it is displayed as "noitcaf". Can anyone tell me is it possible to rearrange the letters at once or I will have to do it manually one by one?
Hi Usercloud, welcome to the Seven Forums.
For Arabic, Hebrew or any other language written from right to left to work in Office as they should, you need to add corresponding input language and enable its keyboard layout. In your case, have you added Arabic as input language and enabled Arabic layout?
I've just upgraded from IE7/Vista SP1, x86, ITA to IE8.
Everything works fine except one thing: IE8's Live Search accelerator to tranlsate text is in arabic-english as default instead of the expected english-italian. If I change to english-italian settings won't be saved.
If I use InPrivate browsing or disable Protected mode it's ok instead.
This problems has been already reported by other users some months ago with the betas: Microsoft Translator Official Team Blog : IE8 Beta 2 - Translation Accelerator

using Google translate I translated "Zekrom Black is in Kuwait" into Arabic because I am making a picture in photoshop about friend's archeology intern in Kuwait so the title was going to be that in Arabic. but Windows 7 is copying the translated text backwards, even in notepad, it goes right when I hit the left arrow until it hits the word "Zekrom" (Zekrom is at the wrong spot in the pasted text (different than Google)) then Windows 7 goes in the right direction.
how do I get Windows 7 to paste the text properly and go the right direction?

Is there anyone out there who can help me? I'm still struggling with the problem, and as Vista has been rather buggy for me lately I've started experimenting with Explorer alternatives. This has helped, amazingly, and quite a bit, but it's still only a stopgap measure. I need SP2, and the many fabled fixes it brings.
Still getting the same "due to a system error" message from my full boot. Should I try Safemode again, or is that just going to give me the same issue about the language pack? Does anyone know a way to get rid of one of those things?
Or should I just be waiting for the multi-language installation of SP2 in the hopes that that will work? Considering that I only have English listed as installed, though, that seems like a sad option. . .

Hello everyone this is my first post on Bleeping Computer so bear with me please It's a long one Thanks I'm running Win Pro Bit On the night of October I was doing some maintenance on my PC Win has a tendency to fill up my C drive so I was trying to open up some space I ran a full scan from Advanced System Care and defragged the hd deleted shadow copies up to the most recent restore point deleted temp files deleted some old NVidia driver files from installs dating back a few years etc While I was doing this I noticed that I was unable to open Outlook I would get a message saying that Outlook could not open my default email folder because it was not a pts file I then noticed that some pictures saved to my desktop no longer had the preview and upon clicking them they would not open Message said that they could not be found or were of a different file type Many Word documents were Cryptowall...but I got only think partially. I unable to be opened too Microsoft Security Essentials was having a fit and would give pop ups in rapid succession telling me that there were detected threats being cleaned but no action needed Here are I think I got Cryptowall...but only partially. some of my symptoms I have been unable to locate any type of decrypt instructions file on any drive There are a few install tor files that were created around the time I was doing my maintenance There are a handful of these one of which I found in my Windows Users folder It's not in every folder I have seen no ransom messages Turns out not all of my Word files are messed up I was able to open Word PDF etc that were saved to other partitions and external drives Nothing on my C drive seems to open None of my pictures seem to open From anywhere Virus and Malware scans turn up a couple of trojans and your normal malware junk that's usually found I quarantined and cleaned these Symptoms are still here There are install tor files found on my PC They are all IE shortcuts and contain the following URL https paytordmbdekmizq torsona com w t c I am able to open some documents but these are on different partitions It seems all of my pictures and Outlook files are unable to be opened across the board I also do not have any shadow copies from before the incident I am getting random Internet Explorer COM Surrogate and Windows Explorer has stopped working errors and Security Essentials is still freaking out with pop ups every seconds telling me that potential threats are being cleaned I am also getting random audio playing that sounds like ads news updates etc When I open Task Manager it is showing several Internet Explorer windows open to shopping websites I haven't used IE and use Waterfox instead I didn't turn IE on I also cannot see these windows playing the audio So is this cryptowall locker Torrent locker A variant Maybe it's none of these and I just screwed up the registry with my maintenance It seems that I have some form of Cryptowall but the lack of ransom message or decrypt instructions make me think I only contracted a portion of the virus Thank you for your help
install_tor is now on my desktop and IE attempts to open the above mentioned URL upon startup. It fails to load the page. Still no sign of decrypt_instructions.

Several days ago I made a post that In Partially Solved X's Ie7 Red I was unable to have IGoogle Maps draw properly in IE The web site I designed was www fbcarmi com Since then I have looked all over the net for an Red X's In Ie7 Partially Solved answer When I Red X's In Ie7 Partially Solved went to the site in FireFox I had no Red X's In Ie7 Partially Solved problems as in Safari This morning I came across an article that said png files created red x's I did check and found that several of the red x's I had were in fact png files The suggestion was to turn off the UAC I did and all of a sudden all of the red x's were gone Also the IGoogle map I used in my web page worked The article went on to say that Microsoft was aware of this and that there was no other fix than to leave UAC turned off As I continued to explore I found an article that suggested turning the UAC back on and right clicking to run Internet Expolorer as an Administrator I did and the red x's are gone The IGoogle map works and all is as it should be My question now is what I can do to set my administrator level such that I don't have to right click on IE every time I go into it in order to be free of the red x's Would sure appreciate any ideas or suggestions that anyone might have Thanks in advancehttp://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/137626/red-xs-in-ie7-partially-solved/
I have tried search, and had no luck, the post about this problem were different than my problem.
Got a replacement Teac 512EB and installed it, when I run Sony Extreme I get the message "No compatible recorder drives have been found on this computer". Nero 5.0 does not reconize a cd rw drive.
The 512EB is dedected in CMOS (IDE 1 Master).
Device Manager detects it. There is no slave with it on IDE 1.
Explorer does not detect it.
ASPI Ver. 4.60(1021) Dated 9/10/99.
New ribbon cable, which I had run my CD Rom on when I was trying to determine if the CD RW I sent back was bad.
What am I missing?
Just noticed in device manager=>properties=>settings, the current drive letter assignment is E for my CD Rom and for the CD RW.
