There have been many threads about this but my case is rather tricky. I have bought a new PC, the person who assembled the PC has installed a Windows 7 Professional Polish starter pack. The day after I bought the PC I have bought the Windows 7 Pro (OEM) English. I typed in the activation codes and it has been fully registered.

I decided that I have to change the language to English so I went to Control Panel > Clock, Language and Region settings > Changed the Format from "Polski" to "English (United States)" and it has only changed the way my date is displayed.

What can I do, there are two options I see, but I don't really like them

Use the Vistalizator~

Use the CD to format OS partition, I do not have a CD/DVD-ROM on that PC, so it would be a bit more problematic for me.

Any suggestions?

What version of Windows 7 are you using exactly? The reason I ask this is because Windows 7 Starter does not officially support language packs. There is no such thing as Windows 7 Professional Starter. Possible duplicate questions:…… and… – Ramhound Jun 10 '13 at 15:56
The person who assambled has installed the POLISH Windows 7 Professional OEM, I had a month to activate it. – Mikolaj Marcisz Jun 10 '13 at 16:03
I attempte dto clarify the title. There isn't a "Starter Pack" to my knowlege. There might be a trial but that is something very different. Windows 7 Professional does not support language packs. You would have to reinstall Windows 7 using an English installation if you want an English interface. – Ramhound Jun 10 '13 at 16:04
