Hello,  I have strange question.  I am more accustomed to UK english than US english, so therefore when ever i see Favorites it bothers me because to me it should be spelled favourites.  Now since I live in the US, i have all US products.  I finally got office to check spelling with the UK way by default, however, whenever i go to websites it shows my language is english-us, how do i get this to english-gb and have all the menus reflect that with out purchasing UK software?  (It really bothers me seeing customize over customise)

Thank you in advance if you can help out in anyway.  (PS i dont think registry hacks will do, i want the system to be in pure UK locale (yes the regional settings reflect that too)
