I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hey everyone,

I am looking for ideas on how to remedy my problem. I have been dealing with XP in Chinese for a long time (just remember where most things are). I finally got myself an English version and went to install Office.

Now the problem I am having is that my office cd is also in Chinese and now it doesn't want to work with the new operating system. Is there any way around this? Can I install language packs or something to allow this program to run?

I was feeling really great about getting my English version of XP but now I am almost starting to regret it.

Any ideas would be great!:cry
 

Answer:Chinese version of Office running on XP home English

I think it depends on if the computer/software has MUI (Multilanguage User Interface)

Av-comparatives.org reports that qihoo 360 internet security has a good detection rate...

However, they used a weird version 5.0.0.5061 while the current stable version is 4.9.0.4902
So I have asked to av-comparatives of the Qihoo 360 internet security version number.
The Av-comparatives answered that Chinese version is used because qihoo requests to use Chinese version.

Here is email from av-comparatives
Hi,
Qihoo is a Chinese company and their Chinese version is used by hundred of millions of Chinese people, while the English version is used only by some thousand users. Qihoo wanted to have the Chinese version tested.
If you come across a report where Qihoo states that the English version was tested, please let us know by providing a link.

I installed a Japanese version of windows 10 but then bought an English version and installed that after finding all the menus could not be changed to English during the install.
My question is does the English version overwrite the JP version or are files left on the SSD using up space?
Also in the end I returned the English version cause I found you can add a language pack to the JP version. The problem with this is that if you get a blue screen the Windows messages are in Japanese. So now unless I can change this I'm going to go back to an English version of Windows 10.
Thanks.

Hello;

Purchased a PC that was supposed to have English content. Turns-out certain apps are in Spanish, most of which I have been able to correct. My
biggest problem though is MS Internet Explorer 6. The browser is in Spanish, and while I was successfully able to download the English version, I get a program warning suggestion that while I could go ahead and install the IE6, I should remove the Spanish version first from "Add/Remove".

Since "Add/Remove" is part of the browser, it too is in Spanish.
When I go to remove the program, it doesn't offer the two options as its offered in the English version- "Remove or Cancel", but basically something that indicates (loose translation I think!) "Repair or " Replace" with a previous version (which I believe there was- in English, prior to the Spanish replacement but I'm not certain)

My question is, since there isn't a clear choice, should I attempt "Repair" or
"Restore-I don't want this to end-up a total reinstallation of W2K all because of a browser issue!

Any and all suggests would be genuinely appreciated- thank you!

Hi there

I bought a new Laptop here in Germany which comes, as you would expect, with a German version of Windows. I would prefer an English version though. It appears I'd have to update to Win Ultimate or Enterprise to be able to change the language which is quite expensive. However, I don't need the ability to change languages, I just want English.

So, I still have an unused English Win 7 license. Is there any way to convert my system from German to English using that license and keeping all the software that is already installed on my Computer?

Any advice will be much appreciated. Thanks!

Answer:Possible to install English version over German version of Win 7?

You can call MS Customer Service to find this out for sure.

I think I'd shrink C in Disk Mgmt to install to a test partition to see if English will activate with your Product Key, as this can vary. If so then we can help you remove the old OS or hide it if ever needed again.
Partition or Volume - Shrink
Partition or Volume - Extend

Put your wireless adapter on a stick so you can get online to try activating. If not just delete the test partition in Disk Mgmt and extend C back over it.

Remember you can only have 4 Primary partitions or three Primary and unlimited Logical. If in doubt post back a screenshot of Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image

Hi,
 
My new computer was given to me with Windows 7 Professional German version installed. I just want to overwrite it with my English Home Premium edition but do I need to format the drive first or remove the existing version? When I try to install it says the drive doesn't have enough space (because of the existing OS).

Answer:Help installing English version over German version

Two thoughts. The first is why don't you just try changing the language settings on your existing installation ?  As I remember, if you use a Windows repair disc the first thing you are asked is to choose your language and keyboard. You can get full instructions on how to create a Windows repair disc here :
 
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/create-a-windows-system-repair-disc/
 
No guarrantees it will work, but if it does it saves you a lot of work !
 
I have Win 7 Home Premium and the complete Windows folder is 27 Gb. This is quite a lot, but I am surprised that you are being told you don't have room to install it. I would expect any new laptop to have at least a 250 GB hard drive. But if you are determined to put Win 7 HP on your laptop, I think you are going to have to remove the Pro version first. Just back up any data you have on the computer before you start !

Hi, newbie and non-techie, please be gentle! Posted in Tutorial section about changing key code, but not sure if it's the right place so will copy here too.
I am buying a new PC in Spain but want Windows 7 Home Premium in English, which does not seem to be available anywhere here. So my techie guy is downloading an English version (pirate???) and at same time buying a genuine Spanish version. He says he will then use the key code from the Spanish pack to validate the English version.
Is this possible, and could I encounter any problems later? How can I be 100% sure (before I leave the shop!) that I have a validated, genuine English version of Windows 7 that will continue to work indefinitely?

I have read that the keys are language-version-specific. Others may know for sure.

Here is how to doublecheck validation before leaving the shop. Ask for the Spanish pack key insert. Run Attachment 39526 and scroll down to see the installed keys on machine: compare audit's Windows 7 key to the key your shop provided given on package insert.

Now go to Start>right click Computer>Properties and scroll down to confirm Windows is activated.

Be sure to keep the Spanish package key insert with the paperwork from your shop. Ask for a DVD copy of the Windows 7 installer to use for reinstalls or repairs.

I bought my notebook Satellite A100-999 from Valencia, Spain. I am from Romania. The Seller told me that Windows Vista has also English as working language. He was wrong. Only for task is English. I tried a lot of time to switch to English but I didn't found anything. So...I ask if someone can lead me somewhere or to give me an patch with English for Windows Vista Home Premium.

Thank you very much.

Answer:Need english version of Vista for my Satellite A100

Hello Nedelcu

I am afraid you have misunderstood something. The seller probably wanted to say that Vista is also available on English language but you cannot preinstalled version switch to each favorite language.
If you want to have vista on English you must buy Microsoft original Vista installations DVD and make clean OS installation.

All necessary drivers, tools and utilities on English version you can find and download from Toshiba support page under http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com > Support & Downloads.

Bye and good luck!

One my family friend purchased it in on-line in 2009. It is good configuration but Bad-luck for me is, it contains *French keyboard and French Windows Vista*.
Anybody know how to solve this problem?

I am facing lot of problems while while writing software code by using this Frech keyboard because we use English- Qwerty keyboard.
*And Is it possible to install Toshiba's Windows-Vista -English version on it.*

I installed generic Win-Vista home edition on it , it is working but there is lot drivers missing, So I am not able to use my Laptop at minimum.
*Could you give me some information/suggestion to solve my problem.*

Thank you,

Answer:How to Install Win Vista -English Version on my Toshiba Satellite L300-2CZ

It's not a problem to dowload all drivers needed either from Toshiba support sites or other good places.
You need at least Chipset+Audio+Video+Network+Wireless drivers and (maybe) some additional like Touchpad, Quick buttons, Bluetooth, Web camera.

In rare cases you can google drivers for unknown device (or just recognise it) through vendor/product IDs in device manager (VID_xxxx&PID_yyyy string in device properties).

Problem with keyboard is simple (in most cases): buy keyboard stickers like this
http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nkw=english+Keyboard+STICKERS
It's not perfect solution but very cheap'n'fast.
Alternative solutions are laser engraved letters on your keyboard or new english keyboard from Toshiba service (I can't even imagine its price).

Guess you can't install *Toshiba's* Vista other than bundled with your laptop. But you can buy any boxed version of Windows meets your requirements, even Windows 7. There is no difference between *Toshiba's* and boxed version of Windows exept license limits, so I advise you to think about boxed Win7.

I tried calling HP support in China, but they don't answer. I know that might be not an HP problem, but I'm just not sure what to do now and how to solve this.

Hi all I bought a new Lenovo Horizon 2e, 2 days ago here in China. The OS was Windows 8.1 Chinese version. I researched a bit before and it said that Windows 8.1 Language can be changed so I thought I would be able to change it to English. I went into the Language settings and there I was supposed to be able to download an English language pack. The option wasn't there and I found out that this version of windows is a single language version. I then thought I will install my own English copy of Windows 8.1. I started the installation and I deleted all the partitions on the harddrive because even the OKR was in Chinese, so no use to keep those. After the point where Windows created all the partitions for the installation and you click next where Windows quick formats the harddrive and goes to the next screen to start copying files, it pops up with error code 0x80070057 and says it cant be formatted. I then tried the same with Windows 7, same thing, then I tried with Windows 10 Technical preview and the same thing happened. I also tried to clean install Windows on a another pc and Backed up the Hardrive and Restore it to the Horizon with Acronis True Image. To no avail. It's as if the bios is not allowing another OS to be installed. There is an option in bios that allows for other operating systems to be installed. This is all enabled.

Is there a difference between the MSDN subscription version of Vista Ultimate and the Retail version that would cause the Virtual Server2005 R2 SP1 installation to fail on a PC upgraded from Home Premium (retail version) to Ultimate (MSDN subscription version)?

I have a Vista x64 Home Premium that came loaded with software from the manufacturer that I would lose if I were to overwrite it by a new installation from my MSDN subscription version of Vista Ultimate.

If I install Vista Ultimate as a brand new installation, Virtual Server installation works fine.

But if I install Virtual Server 2005 R2 SP1 after I upgraded Vista Home Premium to Vista Ultimate, I get the following error at the last phase of the installation: ?Windows Installer has stopped working? and then it sends to Microsoft the attached 3 files.

I even tried Windows Installer 4.5 but it did not work either:

I built a new pc a month ago and have been running Win7 RC1 on it for the time being. Obviously Win7 is coming out next week so I am getting ready to purchase the full version. I could buy the Retail version of Win7 Home Premium 64-bit for $199, or the System Builders version for $99 on newegg.

Can anybody go ahead and buy the System Builders version, or is that restricted to actual pc resellers? Would newegg ask me for a resellers license or something if I try to order it? I built the pc, don't need MS support for it, and will only ever use that copy of Win7 on that pc. I just hate spending twice as much money for the Retail version if legally I can buy and use the System Builders version for half the price. Or am I better off paying more money for the Retail version?

Also, if I can buy the System Builders version, I assume it will come with the install dvd as well as install key? Plus, with that, I can install that copy on just this pc as many times as I want without limitations, correct? Meaning, I usually format and reload windows on a pc twice a year so over 4-5 years I will be reinstalling that copy of windows on the same pc 8-10 approx over the years.
 

Answer:Buying full version of Windows7: Retail version or System Builders version?

Anyone can buy an OEM license. They're cheaper because they don't include Microsoft support. You are your support. OEM licenses are tied to the hardware on which they're installed. Technically you are prohibited from installing an OEM copy on a completely different system, though many people will do this and successfully activate their copy by saying their motherboard failed and had to be replaced, etc.

3. Very decent protection against known and recent (about and more than 1 week) threats;
4. Very light weight as the only resource consuming component is File Antivirus;
5. The main application is as well up to date(2017) and will automatically be updated.
-Cons:
1. lol I cannot read Chinese (jokes) but yeh this is not very good
2. No technical support;
3. No application control so computer data is vulnerable to new ransomware;
4. No system watcher, system is vulnerable against zero day threat;
5. No Internet Security feature (firewall and network attack blocker) so system is vulnerable against port scans, DoS attack and intrusion activities.

My co-workers has a notebook computer. Currently it's load with Chinese Windows Vista. The problem that he is now having is that he has some software that will only work English Windows Environment.

Orginally we were thinking about dual boot Windows Xp English / Vista Chinese. However the problem is that there are no XP driver support for this notebook computer (especially the Press F6 during Setup Hard Drive controller driver)

Is it possible to run a dual boot with Vista English / Vista Chinese? I do remember that this was possible under Xp, however you needed to us a program like BOOT magic as the 2 operating system partitions will clash with out it.

Answer:Dual Boot Vista English / Vista Chinese

I don't see why not. Would just have to use EasyBCD to edit the boot entries and you should be good to go.

Hi there
I'm confused with the W8 x-64 Enterprise TechNet versions - there's an ENGLISH version and a UNITED KINGDOM version -- what's the difference. Anybody got any ideas --AFAIK the official language of the UK is still English so why the different versions. What do I need to download.

Cheers
jimbo

Answer:Technet W8 enterprise - English or UK version ???

There is no difference. It's just that the UK version is configured to use UK settings by default, rather than the US settings which we had in previous OSes (and which we had to manually change after installation and the creation of new User Accounts).

I am running an "Anytime Upgrade" version of Windows 7 Professional. I have since discovered that sysprep does not function (or is disabled) on "Anytime Upgrade" versions of Windows 7. In other words, if I had purchased a physical
copy of Windows 7 professional then sysprep would be available. Since I did not, sysprep is not available.


Question: If I purchased a full retail version of Windows 7 Ultimate and upgraded my current version of Windows 7 Professional using that DVD could I then regain a working sysprep feature on my laptop?

Thank you in advance. I would upgrade to Windows 10, but my graphics card is not supported by Windows 10. I receive an error from Windows 10 Upgrade .... "Windows 10 is not compatible with your graphics card".

Please put it somewhere that i can download!

Answer:Qosmio F30 PQF32E - How to get English version of recovery DVD

You will be not able to buy an English Recovery for this notebook model.
I assume you have purchased this notebook in Russia and therefore you?ve got a recovery disk with Russian language.

If you want to use a Vista in English language then you have to purchase a full English Vista version and then you could install it on your notebook.

There is also an Microsoft Vista language package which allows to change the OS language but this works only with Vista Ultimate version.
Your Vista seems to be a Home Premium and therefore this will not work!

I purchased a Toshiba notebook computer in Mexico, where I am presently living. I thought I could change the operating system to U.S. I discovered that I could not do that, so I had my Mexican Tech guys install a new operating system (they did not give me the disks). Windows Vista Home Premium. My computer still thinks it is in Mexico, from time to time, and I can deal with that. However, I cannot get my sound recording settings to work properly. Being out of the U.S., it is very important that I use Skype. I can get it to work, and the next day it is not working. Control panel settings say that everything is functioning properly - drivers are current, etc. Yesterday it was working, today it is not. The speakers are fine. I just can't talk to anyone because they cannot hear me. For several weeks, Skype complained about "noise in the background". Now it is complaining that I do not have an installed recording device. WOULD IT HELP IF I WENT ON LINE AND BOUGHT AND INSTALLED ON LINE ANOTHER COPY OF WINDOWS VISTA? I tried connecting an old headset with microphone, and it did not show the installation of the device, nor did it show up in control panel as an option for me to us. FINALLY, in Sounds, in my control panel, it shows that I have the same recording device TWICE. One is listed as ... (2). Should I remove it? THANK YOU!

According to the comparison chart linked below, it appears you need to have Windows 7 ultimate in order to have that feature. I may be wrong. Go to Control Panel and see if you have a selection for Region and Language. At any rate, even if you do have that option I suggest you perform a factory restore. Then if you are still in German, change it in Control Panel. You should not need to activate if using the restore partition or the restore disks.http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/...

I have a bunch of OS backups using ghost and I can use ghost explorer to view the image files. Unfortunately I didn't make details on what OS version was installed at the time, just dates the images were taken.

How can I find if these images were from Vista or Windows 7 by just looking at the contents of the image, without actually restoring the image?
 

Answer:How to identify Windows version by file version?

did you install IE8 on your Vista install?
otherwise it comes default with IE7, and Win7 comes with IE8.

so you could use the file version of iexplore.exe, if you left IE7 on the Vista install.

possibly bootmgr file might be different file versions.

I'm trying to install some applications on a Lenovo ideapad with windows 7 home premium, 64-bit, SP1. I'm getting the following error - "The version of this file is not compatible with the the version of windows you're running." I've installed all of these specific applications (e.g. RealPlayer, Logmein, Windows 2007 Compatibility Pck File Format Converter) and many other 32-bit apps on other Windows 7 64-bit machines, including 2 other Lenovo laptops with the exact same specs, purchased at the same time, with absolutely no issue.

I thought maybe it was some kind of virus so I reformattted the laptop and I'm still getting the same issue. It's VERY frustrating. I've searched everywhere and don't see any answers. Does anyone have any idea why this is happening or how to correct it?

Alright, I thought I had the process nailed down, but I'm not having much luck.

I have a new laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit version coming tomorrow. It comes with 4GB of RAM and Windows 7 seems like the first OS that has wide support for the 64 bit version, please correct me if I'm wrong. So I thought I'd upgrade to 64 bit since everyone tells me I can do so, legally, for free, with the key on the sticker on the bottom of the laptop.

So I planned to download the ISO via Bit Torrent and check the hash, as somebody recommended. I installed MD5Summer.

But I'm stuck because I can't seem to find the Hash Checksums for W7 HP 64. Can anybody provide me a link to them on MS's site, or similar?

Anybody got a good BT link to save me from searching myself? I didn't see any that looked like the right version on Demonoid. What should my search term be? "Windows 7 OEM 64"?

I've never installed Windows 7, does the procedure differ from XP? I've installed XP hundreds of times.

What's the best way to verify performance of my new laptop? Free benchmarking program? Website with common benchmarks? I'd like to see if the OS upgrade actually benefits the benchmarks.

Any and all advice is appreciated.
 

Answer:New Laptop, Want to upgrade from Windows 7 32 bit version to 64 bit version

go to a local mom and pop's PC store and show them your license and they should be able to burn you a 64bit cd for $10 or less

I have an RCA Cambio 2n1 Tablet running Windows 10 version 1607 (Anniversary Edition). I have a program that I desperately need to run that is only offered for x64 systems. I understand that I have to do fresh install but I cant seem to find one on Microsoft's site. The windows Update Tool doesn't offer the version I need.

Answer:how can I get a version of windows 10 x64 version 1607 for an RCA Tablet 2n1?

Hi Welcome to Window Central! I'm sorry, but I have no idea what your trying to accomplish. Research shows me you are already running 64bit. If that is not the case, you would have to update your OS to a 64bit system. That is not a easy task. Here's link to WC "How to"!
