Have you tried going into safe mode ?

To go into safe mode press f8 after the boot screen (one with computer/make logo)

after pressing f8 you should then get a menu

select safe mode with networking

then you can try activating it so that it removes the 30 day limit

or you can uninstall it

or the upgrade ultimate may just be a trial
is the key # somewhere in the package ?

Its usually under laptop (but thats probably the home premium #)

Alternatively

you can try using the upgrade ultimate or home premium disc and selecting repair/recover on the menu then select system restore and try restoring to an early point

Change language from french to english on acer 1 laptop


If you wish to change the language you must download a Multilingual User Interface Pack (MUI). Unfortunately such is only supported by Vista Enterprise and Vista Ultimate, so as a Home Premium user there is nothing you can really do unless you are willing to either upgrade to Ultimate or purchase an English copy.

The product key on the label on the bottom of the laptop will only work for the version of Windows that was installed on that laptop.
You can purchase an upgrade Windows Vista Ultimate and to use in conjunction with the existing Vista Home Premium.
