Hi -Shadow-,
Controlpanel->Regional and Language options..
In there youll find teh options to add languages, and extend the support for languages (hidden in advanced tabs..)

Propably... Check the setup in both PCs to find the error..

possible, never heard of or seen somthing like that..
Try to turn on the languagebar and see if it changes when you experience the problem.. Might give a hint to where the problem is!
