You can change it from the command line.
press winkey, enter cmd.exe, now cmd.exe gets selected. Now press CTRL+Shift+Esc, this will open up an elevated command prompt. Now take the following site http://www.winmatrix.com/forums/index.php?/topic/25539-how-to-enable-mui-language-pack-in-windows-7-professional/ and look at what guest adrian writes, and do the same with an english languzapack. You can download it here: http://www.mydigitallife.info/windows-7-sp1-mui-language-packs-official-direct-download-links/ (corresponding to your architecture, x86 for 32 bit, x64 for 64 bit).

Others might tell you, that it's not possible unless you run windows 7 ultimate or 7 enterprise. That's not true. What is true is that with these editions, you may run multiple languages, while with 7 pro or home, you may run only one language. BUT: you may change it :)

Run C:\Windows\System32\services.msc
This opens the Services (local) window.  Scroll to Windows Firewall.  If it says Started in the Status column (usually third column from the left), it is ON.  
In Swedish:
Started is igång
Firewall is brandvägg
