Re: Symantec Antivirus: Change the Language

I don't think there is an option for language in Symantec AntiVirus. You may simply have to purchase an English version of the program.

How to change the language of my laptop from korean to english,the brand of my laptop is LG.I tried to change from the language from the control panel but it doesn't change.

Hi ccharlescart ,

Welcome to FixYa! How are you doing?

You did not specify the operating system you are using (whether Windows XP, Vista, or Windows 7).

If you are using Windows XP, I suggest you reformat the Hard Drive and install a fresh copy of Windows XP.

But if you are using Windows Vista or Windows 7, you can download a language pack that will allow you to change the language to English. By the way. Windows 7 starter edition does not have an option to change the language.

Hope it helps. Thank you for using FixYa!

Hi, though the language is in french you can change that into english, if you are familiar with Windows XP, please figure out the control panel menu, then inside the control panel find the icon for regional and laguage options. it has a globe icon.Tick the "language" tab menu, then the "details", and last "add" the new language.

I dont know how to change the language on my HP mini from french to english

Hi there,
What operating system are you using?
from the keyboard hold down the windows key then press the letter R.
The run box should come up, type in intl.cpl
This will open the regional settings of the computer
The first tab should be format. Change it to english.
Clicl the third button (apply) on the bottom and then click the first botton (OK).
Note: Only applies for computers which has other languages installed.
IF you are using windows xp there may not be a way but to grab a XP english cd and reinstall it.

I have windows xp laptop that was given to me from a friend its in japanese i have no idea how to change it to english version please help me? Vicky

Hi Vicky, how are you?

Here's the story with Windows XP... On a system running ENGLISH Windows XP (Professional ONLY), you can put a Multi-language User Interface (MUI in short) and make it localized. This action is reversible, means you can go back to English at any time or switch to another language. BUT, if the original Windows language is NOT English, you just can't switch the user interface to English.

How to check if it's original English version or not? - Go to Control Panel (a symbol of a notebook and a pen) -> Regional and Language Options (a symbol of a globe). Click on the Languages tab (the middle one). If there's a selection box at the button - you're in luck! Click it and change to English. Then accept and restart!
In there's no selection box - I'm sorry but you'll have to format and install an English version of Windows XP - Home or Professional - whatever fits you best!

Hope I helped,

PS: On laptops that ships with Windows pre-installed in a localized version (language), there's SOMETIMES an indicator to it on the license sticker at the bottom of the laptop.
