    Which Operating System is installed on the netbook? Which company manufactured it?

    I guess you may have to take it to the service centre.

    Its a HP netbook! Although it can be taken to the service centre I think it would be better if the problem was resolved without having to take it somewhere or having it sent off.

    You must have bought it in Russia some where. The best thing to do would be to do a clean OS install and choose the language as English this time.

    I don't know if you are still facing the problem or not but still...
    Go to start.
    Click on the Control Panel option which according to Google Translate should spell like Панель управления or you can look for this icon on the top. Windows_7_CP_Png_and_Icon_by_giannisgx89.jpg
    Then look for Region and Language settings. The icon is thumb_Regional_and_Language_Options.png
    Then select the 3rd tab system and languages and then select english from the drop down menu.sys&lang.jpg
    Click Apply(применять)
    Log Off and then Log-On
    Should work. Worked with Portuguese when I tested.

    Im not sure where it was brought from! I will give this suggesstion about cleaning the OS, but I think its a long process (to be honest I dont think my sister or her husband know how to do it....im guessng!)


    @ therkb - will pass on this suggestion.....hopefully it will work..

    If you re install the operating system you would get a choice of language I think. I am not too sure about this.
