This is a personal Answer, but since it might be usefull to other people, i post it on the list Usualy Microsoft IME come with Either Windows itself or Internet explorer, But maybe there are stand-alone versions I don't know. But any way, I am surprise you have trouble with them, They are the best I could find. When you have one installed, you should see a little Icon in the systray indicating the currently used language. For usual languages (i.e. not needing IME, but just a special keyboard set) you see two letters in a blue square. If you are curently using Japanese, corean or chinese, you should have a (set of) icons typical from the IME. In Either case, click (right or left, i don't remember) on one of those Icons to get a list of available languages, and choose the one you want to use at the moment. If you don't have these systray icons, go to config pannel, and launch what's called something like languages (sorry I for not giving exact names, I don't have any English version of windows). Or maybe it is local setting, I don't remember. Inside one of these you will probably find an otpion to show the icons in the systray. If this does not solve the problem, the problem may be a little diffrent. Usualy windows writes non visible information to know in what language the text you want to read is written, so that you can use many different languages without problem. And if the information is not available (which is the case very often) it displays the text in the default language. Maybe your default language is not any more set to English, so when windows does not know what charset is used, it assumes that it is japanese or something. I don't do this very often, so I am not sure where it is, but you should find in "local settings" or in "languages" some button to chose default language. Take care, it is not labeled as "default language". This one is used to refer to default INPUT language. But I can not remember the exact name, so you'll have to search it on your own. If this still doesn't work, and you officialy bought your Windows, Then you should ask Kro$oft. Otherwise, you should turn to god. ;) Florian
