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. ;)
