Warning boxes in german! Everything else in english
Posted on 2003-11-08
Hoping someone can help me out. I have a mate who is having a weird problem.
In june he bought his pc from a large store, it came pre-installed with XP and is registered to himself. He`s updated various patches/fixes automatically.
Bizarrely, whenever he gets a warning message in accessories programs, for example going to close notepad it`ll ask you first if you want to save unsaved work, it`ll normally ask "do you want to save changes". His says "Anderungen in untitled speichern".
Everything else is in english - menu options etc. Why this is in german is unknown!
He only used notepad and paint last week and so has only just encountered this strangeness.
Has anyone any thoughts? I cant find any record of viruses that cause this. Has anyone encountered something similar? Would there be any quick fixes, changing files or swapping dll`s?
