change WIN XP language - Windows XP/2000/ME

You'll need to obtain an English version of the OS and reinstall.

    One cannot change the language version of Windows XP.
    You must purchase the "Full English Version" of Windows XP,
    reformat your drive and install it "clean". The alternative is to
    create a dual-boot configuration which requires an available,
    empty partition. You can purchase and use Partition Magic 8
    ([url]www.powerquest.com[/url]) to accomplish this.

    If you have a desktop computer, or a notebook computer that
    will accept a second hard drive, you can install a second hard
    drive and install the "Full English Version" on it and end up
    with a dual language boot configuration.

    Cannot Upgrade or Install a Different Language Version of Windows XP

    Sorry, CDs are language-specific. If you want it in English, you
    need to buy an English version. There's no setting to change.
