  1. Right I have just been handed a laptop that is set to the polish language somehow. A game was installed and since then it has been like this.
    The game has been uninstalled and language settings set back to normal (Ireland).
    But the changes will not save.

    Any help would be fantastic.

    Cheers

    You could try, depending on the Os

    Go into the control panel and find Regionl and Lanuage options, switch to your desired lanuage, hoit apply annd ok, Restart, and see if it worked

    best of luck

    Windows cannot change language just like that, unless it has a multi-langual package installed. Do you mean Windows wasn't in Polish & just installing the game changed it ?

    What is in Polish? The Entire OS, all the messages etc?

    You should have a program called "muisetup.exe" somewhere in your Windows folder. Run that and choose your desired system language. At the minimum, you should have English available there.

    The entire o\s has changed to polish messages,welcome screen,every single thing. I will look for that .exe and get back to you.

    Right none of that has worked. Just going to wipe it the whole thing and start over.

    Thanks
