@Twisty: Man, that ComboFix program is really something! Scared the pants off of me. It was only after I'd run it and was trying to figure out what it had done that I became aware that ordinary people and not supposed to use it, only trained experts. But thanks anyway. I seem to have survived it.

Beginning to think this is normal, asking for confirmation

@JeffClayton: Thanks for the recommendation. AdwCleaner found two things it didn't like, Microsoft Bing Browser Helper Object and Microsoft Bing Bar. Still hoping for an opinion as to whether my modified registry entry is a sign of malware or not.

Thanks for the recommendation. It's certainly much, much faster than Microsoft Security Essentials! I've run it on one of the two PCs, and it did not find any malware. Other recommendations, and especially any opinions about my specific registry problem, are still very welcome.

comment Is it possible to change Windows UI language without logoff?
Thank you very much. Unfortunately I'm working on something completely unrelated to this now, but next time I'm working on something involving language dependencies I'll check out your suggestion.

Thanks, but you're not answering my question. What I'm asking is whether it is possible to change the Windows language WITHOUT logging off, which in my experience it always forces me to do.

Thanks, but this doesn't seem to have any effect on the .Net property Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentUICulture, which (if I understand correctly) is in turn dependent on the Windows API GetUserDefaultUILanguage.
