Changing the Windows XP interface from French to English

A friend has purchased a netbook with a localized XP edition (Hebrew). Now he wants to have the English version of XP on it.

Is there a way to uninstall the language pack and go back to English or something like that?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

I would refer you to this question, it was from French to English, it's the same process :… – Gnoupi Oct 19 '09 at 13:07

You can't do it. You can only install OS language packs on a English system. It is so by design. So the only option would be to reinstall the OS.

Depends what specific version, but I'm quite sure that the answer is "no" unless your friend has the professional edition (?).

To remove:

Control Panel/Regional and Language options/Languages/Details/Remove

Don't forget to first add the english language pack and try it out, because my real impression is that you can't convert a Hebrew XP installation into English without reinstalling Windows. Meaning that the language pack will only allow you to type in English, while all the applications already installed will still use a Hebrew user interface.
