IE6 in English versus French

by rebecca777777 / November 20, 2004 9:23 AM PST


When I upgraded IE6 with Service Pack 2, Microsoft automatically installed an interface in French, as I bought my laptop in France.

I would like to go back to English (previously, I had Yahoo's customization of IE in English). Along the way, if I could get all XP interfaces in English, it would be great. I have tried several things, including attempting to cancel SP2, but nothing has worked out.

I cannot even change browser, as Yahoo toolbar does not work with other browsers.

Could any of you sort this out? I would appreciate.

Have you tried System Restore? That should back you out of SP2 and put everything back how it was. But, of course, you'll have SP2 no longer.

I am trying to help a friend out who spends summers in France and bought a laptop there. Now, he wants to use it here for the winter. We connected to the internet using his broadband connection but is not able to bring up US websites, just the ones in France. Do you have any insight to what we have to change for the computer to work here? I'm clueless and am struggling with a language barrier too. Loretta

Just a little humor... :)

Maybe a check with Jacque Chirac will disclose a block (veto). My apology for the twisted humor. Wink

Good luck to you... hope you find a way. Surely one is out there.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
