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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hey everyone,

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?

A:XP partially displaying text in Arabic?

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.

A:Arabic, Persian Text Prob While Copying

Asalam, Kaifa
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.

Hi there,

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

Hi all I've been browsing this forum off and on hunting for solutions to my many troubles with Vista over the last several months and I've finally had one that no one else seems to be having or solving For background problem Premium 32bit Home Arabic installation in - language SP2 pack? I am SP2 installation problem in Home Premium 32bit - Arabic language pack? running Home Premium bit on an HP laptop with SP currently installed When I SP2 installation problem in Home Premium 32bit - Arabic language pack? try to install Vista SP from my primary account I am the system administrator it informs me that 'Installation was not successful' due to to a 'system error' It then instructs me to run the quot Check for System Update Readiness quot tool CheckSUR to attempt to solve the problem which I have tried several times Not counting the time I installed it back in April when it first was released The error code in question was TRUST E NOSIGNATURE x b I have run through the entire list of options to try on the Microsoft official help page and have begun to try a few other things in order to solve the problem Most recently I attempted to install the service pack from Safe Mode where it informed me that the REAL problem was that I have a language pack installed that is not supported This confuses me because I don't recall ever installing the Arabic language pack have certainly never been to Saudi Arabia and don't speak or read Arabic The only language pack that shows up in the list of installed language packs when I run LPKSETUP as suggested on another thread here is English Though this WOULD undoubtedly explain why I've been seeing an optional update in my Windows Update dialog for Arabic language support for the Windows Help Needless to say I hid the update but it hasn't changed anything either Out of desperation I have even attempted to remove all the folders marked ar-SA from the Windows folder but this hasn't seemed to affect anything - the service pack still won't install and still gives the same error So you know what I've tried and something of what the problem is The other issue I've been having which may or may not be related is that my quot Turn Windows Features on or off quot dialog shows up blank Much to my annoyance But that's likely an issue for another thread And as it does not appear in Windows Update I have been trying to install SP from the Standalone installer Any help would be greatly appreciated - and thank you in advance

A:SP2 installation problem in Home Premium 32bit - Arabic language pack?

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. . .

Greetings! I've searched everywhere for the answer to this issue. It must be common, but I can't find it anywhere. I'm using MS Word 2007, but the problem was the same in 2003. 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!

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

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.

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 ).

A:Arabic numbers

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.

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.

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.

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?

Kind regards,

As far as I know you have two options:
1/try to order original recovery installation disc on
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

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.

I looked up the IP address showing in your screen shot. It comes back to Pakistan Telecommunication Company LTD in Punjab. Do you have any connection with that company like are they your internet provider?

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. Screencap attached. I know I've come across this before and thought the problem lied in the registry, but can't seem to find the culprit.

If you've run into this before and can add some insight, I'd appreciate it. Win XP Media Center, SP2

I am trying to help a friend with his computer. Problem is he has a laptop 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?

One thing to note, I've gone into the control panel and then into "Region and Language" and set all of the settings to English and it hasn't changed anything.

Please help. It's impossible to navigate these symbols!

A:Toshiba laptop stuck in arabic mode?

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:
sfc /scannow

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.

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

Hi kisk:

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. =)

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?

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?

Hi Jertyrano, and welcome to TSF.

This kind of Theme hacking is not a good idea as I found to my cost recently, I ended up having to do a complete reinstall.

If you created a system restore point as instructed, I would be tempted to revert to that. If not, you could try system file checker,

click >> >> run >> and type sfc /scannow (note the space after sfc) >> click ok or press enter. This command will immediately initiate the Windows File Protection service to scan all protected files and verify their integrity, replacing any files with which it finds a problem.
In all likelihood you will be prompted to insert the Windows XP CD. This may not work though if you applied the wfp patch. Your other options then would include using recovery console or a Repair Install

Let me know how you get on.

Also, if you have enough ram, why not consider installing Windows 7 ?

Hi bicycle

See if the behavior persists in an alternate browser (Firefox, Opera, etc.).

If you are having the trouble typing text into a Google search box that is part of a special toolbar, try uninstalling/reinstalling the toolbar.

If neither of those help, and your browser is IE, try a repair reinstall of IE, which varies depending on the OS version you are currently running

For some reason this has just started recently, each time I go to my homepage, which is set for email, the text gets reset to 100% and will not stay on the 75% I previously had it set on no matter how often I set it back to 75%. Is there away I can get it to stay at 75% without it reseting itself to 100%? I'm on Windows XP IE8.Thanks HJ.

IE should remember your zoom level.

Have you tried to changing the level via the Menu Bar?

i'm using a 3rd party visual style with windows xp (concave to be exact).

i installed it a few days ago, and decided to make it my default theme. however, i've run into some gui annoyances. mainly black text over black background. i've been through every setting in the advanced apearance tab in the control panel, and i've downloaded about a million different registry editors and visual style editors, but i can't seem to find the setting for this one bit of text.


if i right click on a folder and select properties, most of the text in the window is black. (see image below)

my question is, is there a way to change the font color using native-to-windows settings or do i need a program, and if so, what program would you recomend if you know of any?

I have a problem that I've been trying to figure out for simply ages - so I wondered if any of you bright sparks could work this out.

I have a text file with many millions of words. It has been designed for a screen 60 characters wide and at the end of each line there is a hard return.

How do I delete these hard returns so that when I look at the file in word each paragraph is formatted properly with only one hard return at the end.

I could do this manually though it would take me weeks. It also needs to be done on a regular basis so if anyone has any idea of how I might approach this I would be grateful.

Try this, Steve:

Hit ctrl-h to bring up the find/replace dialog box. In the Find box, put:


Hit tab to get to your Replace With box. Hit the spacebar once. Click Replace All.

If you end up with a lot of double spaces, just put two spaces in the Find box and one space in the Replace With box and hit replace all again. You can continue to hit do THIS find/replace until zero replacements are made.

In Word, with the show/hide toolbar button selected, hard returns look like a backward P. Often, text files contain a different kind of return that looks like an arrow that points downward and to the left. If that is the case, select and copy one of these characters and paste that into the Find box instead.

If this doesn't work for you, post your email, I'll be glad to take a look at the file and figure out a way to make it work, possibly even a macro that will run it all automatically. I just can't post my email. Good luck!

Hi! I have an HP Deskjet 3940 printer. Lately its been giving problems printing pages containing black text. Upto half of the page it prints quite ok. But after that it looks like the cartridge is out of black ink or the cartridge is not cleaned. But i've cleaned the cartridge and i know there's enough ink. And the funny part is its not a problem for printing images. Why's this so? Please help...

My main annoyance is that the problem affects viewing of my own website whereby now no matter page text size I apply (largest - smallest) the main body of the text (in Verdana font I think) stays exactly the same size and my menu bar running down the left of the web page is altered but very bunched up and sentences, now not on the same line. (As if I have made the web page too narrow).

A couple of weeks ago I tried to alter the page or text size in internet explorer which I think caused this problem but have been through everything I can think of to reverse it including resetting internet options.

What I have noticed is that if I set the page text size to smallest and then view any webpage with the Verdana (I think) font, Verdana stays the same size but all other fonts are reduced.... any ideas? I wouldn't be bothered but my website's menu bar is very messy now and very annoying! And no I haven't changed my own website's settings as I do all that off another PC.

Any help much appreciated

It may not fix your problem at all, but would you consider installing IE8 ?
You are a little behind in time. ( IE9 beta is already here.)
Maybe IE8 will resolve the problems ? Maybe not, but there is no downside installing IE8, I don't think.

My 5.1 sound system works fine with all sound applications that I have tested except the text-to-speech program. When I run text-to-speech the narrator will read the text, but I only hear a faint muffled voice coming from my center speaker and subwoofer. I have checked all sound settings that I can find, including the text-to-speech audio settings in Control Panel, but to no avail. I am also running Natural Reader software and I have the same problem. I need help.

Just installed a new graphics card today (9400GT for a bargain) and currently running XP through the built on HDMI port to a 42" Samsung LCD. Before I was running it through the same monitor via VGA.

But since upgrading the text on everything has been terrible looking. Real jagged edges and just not very easy on the eyes. I've checked to make sure the latest video driver is installed, took a peak at all the display settings I know to find, and still the text is funky. I've also noticed that some of the icons have gotten smaller.

Images, video, and even the XP Clock text are fine. Its just general text (XP message boxes, this post here, icon text, everything really) is funky.

Is there an easy fix for this? I'm sure there is a simple step I've overlooked and its getting the better of me.

A:Windows XP Text Problem

It could be that the screen resolution is set to something that doesn't sit too well on the monitor.

Go to Start > Control Panel > Display > Settings. Look for the 'Screen resolution' slidebar and slide it to the left, until you find a resolution that looks right on your eyes.

I go to a web page, I highlight text I wish to print, I then copy it and go to Word Pad
I then paste it, because I want the font size bigger I click on the font size then paste
the page however the font size then goes back to 10. I then highlight the pasted text
then click the font but then all the font sizes and fonts dissapear in their respective boxes.
In other words it seems I have to have font size 10 or nothing.
Can i rectify this if so how. OR if not, is there another free program i can download which will do what i want

thank you

Great solution to numbered item... But I'm having a problem when attempting to sort columns with text in Excel XP...

My worksheet has approx. 33,000 rows worth of info (Dates and Days in two separate columns, the other 8 columns are text). When I attempt to do any sorting (using Data, Sort) it appears sorted, but then when you scroll down, it appears that the second half of the sheet was missed.

Is this a known issue? Any cure?

Thanks in advance for your help!


A:Text Sorting Problem

What is the data that appears not to be sorted?

Probably the dates, huh?

Some may be text and some may be dates.

Click on the formula bar for an item that sorted properly and for one that didn't.

What's up there?

If you find the numbers/dates that aren't working right, put a 1 in any empty cell, Copy it. Select the "baddy" numbers/dates cells. Hit Edit-Paste special-Multiple. That forces Excel to see it as a number. If it turns into something else, then it should fix it. If not, it's text. You may need a formula or something.

Can you post some of the actual problem cells in a Workbook?

Anyway my kids hit something on the keyboard & now everthing is extra big. I just suffered with it for a whil ( It IS easier to read ), but you have to scroll over all the time & that's getting to be a pain. I realize it's probably something very simple, but nothing I've tried has worked! Help?

I went into apperance etc. but nothing there helped, & I know it was something they did on the keyboard.

As always Thanks SO much!
