Preferred Solution: OK! Select Language: English (United Kingdom), English (United States)

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


I have a new Windows 8 laptop with a US keyboard. When I set the display language as English (United Kingdom), it says "Unavailable in this version of Windows". Please tell me how to use English (United Kingdom) as Windows display language with an English
(United States) keyboard layout.

Since upgrading to Windows 8.1 my keyboard is no longer set to English (United Kingdom) - so I keep getting US keyboard settings for various characters like @ when typing ! In Windows 8 I could change the settings easily in Control Panel >Clock, Language, Region. But now when I go to Control Panel> Language it seems that English (United Kingdom) is only available as a download. I tried to download and install the update but although it downloaded OK it was taking so long to install that I cancelled the operation in desperation !

A:English (United Kingdom) language

since upgrading to Windows 8.1 I've had a number of problems, some I've been able to sort.

But I am having trouble getting the English(United Kingdom) version keyboard. In the Language section of the Control Panel it is shown as my preferred setting, but if I roll mouse over it then says it's 'available' to download. Tried that, downloaded OK but wouldn't install ('hung' for over 30 minutes doing nothing before I gave up and cancelled !). Didn't have this problem with Windows 8 (or any previous versions of Windows either). As far as I am aware all previous versions have had both US and UK versions installed requiring only the user to make a simple switch with just a couple of clicks !

A:Wont Install English United Kingdom

Hi, fellow Windows 7 Users. I have two Keyboard Layouts on my system. EN English (United Kingdom) and JP Japanese (Japan). For no reason, United States pops up there and I cannot remove it in the Keyboard Layouts. This system was bought in the UK and has a UK Keyboard Layout, this has nothing to do with the United States Keyboard Layout. Why does this keep popping up? And how can I stop this? Thanks in advance!

A:EN English (United States) Keeps Installing Itself!

Hi, I started having the same problem on my computer recently, for no reason. I also have JP Japanese (Japan) installed (along with French, which is also the language of my OS) however I've had it installed for more than a year.

Did you eventually find a solution to your problem or does someone have ideas now given that we both have Japanese installed?

PS: you can remove it by installing EN Enlgish (United States) and deleting it, but it will come back anyway next time you restart your computer or use the alt+shift shortcut.

I was doing a crossword puzzle online and all of the sudden a couple of windows flashed across the screen and the language changed from all English to a mixed English and Arabic (I believe). The menu bar at top of screen is gone too. HELP!

A:Language on my computer changed from English to English and (I believe) Arabic

Press the Windows flag key + R and in the Run open field type: intl.cpl (press enter)
Check that the drop down box under “Format: English” is set to “Match Windows Display language (recommended)"

I would be a little leery that something malicious may have been installed on the computer to cause this unwanted change. You may want to update and run any AV and or anti-malware programs you may have installed.

Why I hate Internet Explorer
Had some trouble with the annoying Babylon search I finally managed to get rid of it but was left with Bing as the default search engine I prefer Google so I went to add it but it was absent from the UK search providers the only real competition for Bing that
Microsoft allows is the Ask & Yahoo search engines plenty of rubbish options like confused.com or BBC music search but no Google !
I did find a Google accelerator in the add-ons but you cannot set it as the default search engine.
I had to revisit the search engine page & change the gb in the Address bar to us & get the Google search provider from the US site.

I had gotten the ransomware about 5 to 10 min ago, I am aware you need to boot the system in safe mode in order to fix it but every time I try, safe mode it starts but then it logs itself out and restarts. Has anyone ever herd of this, or know what to do? Is there some other way to open safe mode to remove it, a way to keep safe mode open with a disk of some kind? I don't know what to do.   ThanksEdit: Moved topic from Windows 95/98/ME to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

Hi, all! I have a family member's computer that I think is running unupdated Windows 7, and it's picked up the United States Courts ransomware. Bleepingcomputer has a rundown on it here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-united-states-courts-ransomware Unfortunately, the version on my sister's computer is newer. One cosmetic difference: the background isn't the original desktop, but a fake set of UNIX-looking commands, black on white. The functional difference is that whenever I boot in safe mode or safe mode with networking, the computer automatically logs off and resets before I can enter any commands. I was able to run RKill once, but it didn't find the right processes and the lock screen showed up right after it terminated. I am also under the impression that the virus can play sound, but that might just be paranoia. I'm trying very hard to get my sister to give up on her (fairly small) amount of data -- I have reinstall CDs and am itching to use them because this virus is such a pain. But I'd like to grab her files if possible; they might even be small enough to send via email, if I could get a couple of minutes of functionality out of the system. What do you folks think? Any tips? Thanks very much in advance!!

Laptop: Acer Aspire One
Op system: Windows XP Home Edition - Version 2002 - Service Pack 3

I am using the keyboard that comes on the laptop, not an external one. I use the keybord with the United States-International setting in order to use the accents of Latin languages.

For the last month or so this is happening with all applications (Word 2007, IE Explorer, Firefox, etc): when I press some keyboard keys the response on the screen is not what it is supposed to be with the international keyboard.

For example, ' shows '', ~ shows ~~, so I can't print any accented vowels. It was working properly for almost two years and suddenly started this erratic behavior.

I have not made any changes except the Microsoft updates. I have tried adding and removing the international keyboard several times. I also tried with num lock off, and that was not the problem. The keyboard layout is set to US international correctly, it shows correctly on the task bar, but the characters do not print as expected.

I read in some web-board that apparently the same issue is happening to users of Windows 7 latest version patched, and that maybe a recent Windows Update has broken International keyboard for XP, Vista and 7. Based on that, I removed the Windows updates dating back to when I recall all was well. Still, problem unresolved.

Any suggestions?

Thank you very much

Would I need to make a disclaimer in the site footer, and be very careful about saying people are federal agents? I've made a disclaimer below, would it work?
