Unable to load language resource DLL

In the last few days Windows 95 has started to inform me that it is "Unable to load language resource DLL".

If I right-click on an icon on my desktop or in an explorer window, I frequently (but not always) get a message box saying "Unable to load language resource DLL". I click the OK-button on the message box, and the correct menu pops up. So everything apparently works as it should, but it is very annoying to get the error message all time.

I have not recently installed any new software. I have not knowingly made any configuration changes to my system recently.

I called Microsoft support, but they couldn't help me. They merely suggested that I reinstall Windows 95.

Any ideas?

What language setting do you have your keyboard set for? Or have you change the language of your dictionary in a say, Word?

The keyboard is Danish (and has not been changed for ages).
I have not changed my Word dictionary, and, anyway, Word is not running.

Could have been the result of a bad install...

The Microsoft article quoted relates to the Microsoft Natural Keyboard with IntelliType software; but I'm not using the Microsoft Natural Keyboard, nor am I using IntelliType software.
