In Xp I'm unable to view or change the lanuages and methods you can use to enter text in the languages tab of regional and languages options.

I'm Trying to stop the annoying ctf loader data excution prevention window from showing up numberous times a day. Through my research i found this and I get stuck at step 2 which is: In Windows XP, click Date, Time, Language, and Regional Options, and then click Regional and Language Options. On the Languages tab, click Details.

I get a rundll message that says: an exception occurred while trying to run "shel32.dll,Control_RunDLL input.dll"
Im stuck for the moment considering this is the only way to fix this approiately. I tried to fix this with local admin account.  Do i need to repair windows, or could it be our image at our business?

    It is possible that there were restrictions on changing these settings at some point. You can try and change these setings via registry by ollowing steps shown here:

    And if it still it doesn't work, then you might need to repair windows or simple DLL file repairs.

    I hope it helps.

    You could also try launching it independantly from the Run box type:
    control intl.cpl

    this substitutes the name of the tool you want to run for %1%. For example: "rundll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL control intl.cpl".  > Is what the OS will runbut without using the Control Panel GUI which may be casuing the exception to be iniated.
