Wrong language (Arabic?) in certain dialogs/windows

Q: Wrong language (Arabic?) in certain dialogs/windows

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...

Preferred Solution: Wrong language (Arabic?) in certain dialogs/windows

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.)

A: Wrong language (Arabic?) in certain dialogs/windows

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 RC support Arabic keyboard input guys ... or not

can i read and write arabic in it just like beta

i'm using windows 7 build 7057 now and it support arabic ... pls. tel me

A:Arabic language

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.

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.
7. rebooted. 
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.

"Region & language" appear the same but it ain't working. Lucida console is default font on both systems. I only want arabic as an optional language to read & type with 'on call'.

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?

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. . .

My current workstation is running WIN XP PRO SP At one point it was being used by my Russian stepson who put a bunch of games etc on it that were in Russian After my own computer motherboard failed I cleaned this workstation up but didn t reinstall windows yet as I was hoping that this wouldn t be necessary Unfortunately when I tried to install the setpoint software from Logitech the splash screen and install instructions come up display install/updates in wrong specific Language language. in Russian The same thing also occured with one of my HP scanner programs Although I have the language settings set to English I Language specific install/updates display in wrong language. do have the Russian keyboard language support also available so that my wife can type in Russian sometimes But even though I have the language set in English and it displays on the task bar as being in English unless I switch it to Russian Language specific install/updates display in wrong language. I can t download updates etc on the software that is quot language quot aware NOTE I have called Logitech who didn t have anyone in their support area who could help me We found one older version of the setpoint software that was showed up mainly in English although a few of the choices for location etc were displayed in a Russian language drop down list even then I am guessing that there is some registry entry etc that the logitech and some HP software look at in order to provide a universal install program and the techs I talked too didn t know about Any help would be greatly appreciated nbsp

Hei Damstas, tervetuloa Seiska foorumille.

Asenna Englannin kielipaketti Windowsin asennusvaiheessa Windowsin ollessa Audit Modessa ja seuraa mainitun oppaan ohjeita kopioidaksesi asetukset ns. oletus k?ytt?j?profiiliin. Kun nyt poistut Audit Modesta ja viimeistelet Windowsin asennuksen, se kysyy mill? kielell? haluat asentaa Windowsin, suomeksi vai englanniksi. Valitse enlannin kieli ja nyt Windows asentuu t?ysin englanniksi.
Hi Damstas, welcome to the Seven Forums.

A language pack converts Windows almost totally to selected language although some settings and variables hidden deep in system always remain in original language.

There's a workaround for this. This tutorial shows you how to change settings of Windows 7 default user profile in Audit Mode during the installation of Windows, using Windows System Preparation Tool.

Install English language pack during Windows installation in Audit Mode and follow the instructions in the tutorial I mentioned to copy settings to the Windows default user profile. When you now exit Audit Mode to finalize Windows installation it asks in which language you want to install Windows, in Finnish or in English. Select English and now Windows will be installed completely in English.

Please contact the device manufacturer for software recovery optons.'

One of my alumni mailed me a question.
I don't have the answer. So I am asking the experts here....
His son lives in Turkey. He bought a new Win 7 Home premium computer. Upon installing, he entered Turkey to question of where he resides.
Presto, the display language is in Turkish. He does not know Turkish.
He needs to know how to change default language back to English.
Can he re-install and enter place of residency as US ?
Does he have to buy an Ultimate license and then install language pack ?

Thank you.


A:wrong language upon installing Win 7

If this is a major PC brand it always includes a full factory warranty and Tech SUpport for a year minimum. If he needs to call, chat or email them to help reset the language he should do so.

If it initially offered English as a language in that regional version then, yes, a reinstall should offer it again. Was he provided with Reinstallation or Recovery media? If not I would have him make the media as a backup and then run Factory Recovery from its partition, or Reinstallation media.

First of all - welcome to BC !
You say Chrome starts in the wrong language, but you don't say which language you would consider correct !  And you give us a choice of three - Flemish, French and American  English.
I  know that the AZERTY keyboard is the de facto French standard - I found this out after I got my e-mail log-in wrong three times in a French internet cafe, then I looked at the keyboard - but if that is the installed keyboard, how is the installed language English ?  Have you tried uninstalling Chrome and re-installing it to see if you get a 'Choose language' option ?

Hi all. My girlfriend has an Acer Aspire laptop on Windows XP (Russian language OS) which I have just connected to an Epson CX7300 printer (purchased in Russia). The printer is connected to my English laptop and all is fine, but when connected to the Russian one, the print information window just comes up with vertical bars (e.g. IIIIIII).
Some windows come up in English and some others come up in what looks like it could be Arabic, written from right to left!
I selected Russian language from the menu when I first installed it and this problem arose. So, I uninstalled it and reinstalled, selecting Russian again and got the same problem.
Russian language is in the list, but somehow it's gone to Arabic!!!
Can anyone help me with a solution?

Hello folks, my father-in-law has bought himself a laptop which has Windows Home Premium on it (pre installed so he doesn't have a disc). When he started to set it up he selected German by mistake rather than English and now can't figure out how to get it back to English.

I suggested that only the way he might be able to do this is, is to complete the setting up process and then try and change it back through the regional settings in control panel?

Is there any other way of resetting this back to English?

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,

A:Arabic to English Windows 7


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

KB Fix - 3153199

We found that the issue is caused by the security update for kernel mode drivers that are updating the following file - Win32k.sys - Any update to this file on or after May 10, 2016 through Windows Automatic update is causing the problem.

Our clients do not agree to turn off the automatic windows updates.
Is it possible to setup a GPO to change the Windows Update settings for all PCs in the domain to stop all the new updates to the file Win32k.sys?

Is Microsoft aware of this issue & is there a plan to provide a resolution to this issue in terms of a future KB fix?

For those of you that have disabled Vista's UAC so you don't have to respond to its dialog boxes but would like to keep it running for what protection it does provide (debatable ) or at least want your Administrator account free of its dialog boxes, use the below link.Windows Secrets Newsletter Article about UACThere you will find instructions on how to do this. Making such a change could be risky so use it at your own risk for those of you who choose to follow the articles directions.Use anti-spyware/malware software regardless along with your anti-virus software to help protect yourself.

A:Disable Uac Dialogs Without Actually Disabling Uac

My interpretation of the Langa Newsletter article that you've cited is that it WILL disable UAC for the Administrator accounts. There will be no UAC protection available for those accounts - so if malware exploits them, you won't know about it. The standard user accounts will still have the elevation prompt (so will be, in effect, protected by UAC).

The normal account in Vista functions as a Standard User until it's called upon to do something that requires Administrator credentials.
If it's a Standard User account, then it asks for Adminstrator credentials (username and password) in order to perform the action.
If it's an Administrator account, then it simply asks for permission (without the need to enter credentials) in order to perform the action.

Without UAC, this elevation will be automatic. If malware exploits it, it will install and you won't know about it. Yes, UAC is a PITA - but getting infected is more of a PITA. Even if it only stops one type of malware - wouldn't it be worth it?

Hi All

Although I have this problem primarily with gmail, I think the question belongs here since it's a selection window that (I think) comes from Windows XP.

My problems is this: Pretty much every time I want to attach a file to an email, it's a file that I've only just modified. So, when I click on Attach File then Browse, the 'Details' view would be best, sorted by 'Last Modified', but what I get instead is the List view - i.e. it doesn't remember my previous choice.

Is there a tweak to make the "browse" window always open with Details/Sort by Date Modified?

I'm happy for this to be the default in any context. Nine times out of ten I want the most recently worked-on docs in other applications too.

Thanks in advance.

Does anyone know what to call these little items of text and/or how to change color of them?
Thank you kindly, it's driving me nuts!

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.

I hope I am posting in the right place.

I need to transform my existing Logitech keyboard which has a German layout into one that can type into Arabic. Is there a way I can do so? I saw many stickers with Arabic alphabets for keyboards. Are these of use?

Looking forward to your help. Thank you.

Hi Team,
As you can see by the pic i'm getting this error message popup. 
All my Internet Shortcuts (.url's) i click on my desktop open my browser and direct me to the web page,
then mr message box appears. A little googling tells me my file associations are out of whack.
The fix i got was to edit folder options/file types/extensions Internet Shortcut .url. 
the default was internet explorer, so in advanced settings i changed it to my default browser chromium 32.0.
seemed logical? but alas annoying problemo still persists.
Could some kind soul possibly lead me in the right direction?

Problem's pretty much the same as this old thread I can't seem to be able to change explorer or explorerframe in any way that wouldn't make this problem appear I tried installing the skins manually with UxStyle and we're talking about some of the most popular skins out there dEEP and Elune for instance or with CustoPackTools End result is the same - either the theme works but I get an empty folder browsing dialog such as if I click Save As from the browser or Browse during any installation - or the dialogs styles installed Browse empty visual with Browse dialogs work after SFC scannow restores all the files but then the themes don't work Registry solutions discussed in the aforementioned thread encounter the same quot DllRegisterServer was not found quot error I could run a custom theme without replacing explorer and explorerframe with UxStyle but come on that's half-arsed isn't it it should work and show all the theme elements Been trying to get it done for two days now I must be missing something simple Any help would be very much appreciated

A:Browse dialogs empty with visual styles installed

Welcome to the Seven Forums
Post a link to one of the themes you are having trouble with and I will look into it.
You said you used a "CustoPackTools" was this something you installed or did it install a theme post a link to this also?
When you installed UxStyle teach you follow the procedure in this tutorial Enabling Custom Themes - Windows 7 ?
How many system files and what are they have you changed like explorer.exe and explorerframe.dll?
Post that links and answer these questions and we will see what we can do.

one thing I can't understand why they still have not fixed the file replace bug.

copy a file to a server - you get the confirm file replace dialog then a second later the copying dialog pops up over it.

Been the same since XP...

why can't this all be in the same dialog?

Not to quote a different OS - but apple has a much better file copying system - copy dialogs are all grouped together with confirmations grouped.

Anyone got any ideas about this?

Hello guys. WinXP has a great app named XFilesDialog, it allows us to set custom size to GetOpenFileDialog and GetOpenFileDialog, and added custom buttons so that we could add favorities and have history link to latest folders and files.

But unfortunately the developer had been very lazy last years and takes more than 1 year to release 1 update with some bugfixes.

Is there any alternative, fully developed for XP64 and 7 Win64, with the same features?

I was just about to make a thread about the same thing.

I have not found any way though. Yet.

Ideally I would want to change the "Library" button to something else, as I never use it. Spesifically in this type of save/open dialoge:

I installed Windows 8 Pro and installed an additional language(let's say it's B) pack, changed system display language to B, and system locale to B.

And I got infinite BSOD after installing some drivers(not related to language pack, just I made mistake installing old programs), so I 'refresh'ed the system.

Guess what, after the refresh, system display was set to English(united kingdom, which is default), AND system locale remained as language B.

This is the problematic part;
1.I CANNOT change system display language to B, it says it's unavailable.
2.The system regards the language pack is already installed because I can still use B as system locale.
3.I cannot reinstall or remove the language pack. LPKSETUP doesn't detect B.

SO i'm pretty much stuck, and I don't want to reinstall just to change the system display language.

Is there any solution to this(removing/reinstalling language pack)?

I found this official link 1 hour ago after searching for 2 years.

I own an Office 2007 Student Pack in Italian - but I'm used to excel formulas in English,
and to have all Office in English. The interface being in Italian it's a pain.

Microsoft 2 years ago discontinued the support for language pack support,
I was pointing there to change interface every-time I had to reinstall.
The PC Main Disk crashed, and over the pain to do the full install of everything,
I discovered that I was stuck with an Italian Office !

Now they came back and offered a good solution ... full download of the older Office version ... any language.
(only 32 bit)
Hope it will help some other People out there !

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.

A:Arabic translations on web searches

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!.

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.

A:Typing in Arabic issues

Try this

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?
