Changing the main language in Windows Vista and 7

August 11, 2010

Recently I bought a new laptop for my parents. They live in Peru and for them having Windows in English is very complicated.

I started searching online on how to change the main language in Windows Vista, but apparently you have to have the Business Premium or Ultimate versions to be able to do it. Unless you use Vistalizator. This free software will allow you to use Microsoft’s own language packs in any version of Vista or 7.

The installation was very simple and after downloading the Spanish language pack the software took care of the rest.

Recently I also used this software to allow a customer to use Arabic in her computer. It worked flawlessly. Highly recommended.

Basic Virus protection tips

Here are some basic tips to prevent a virus infection.
  1. Do not open any files attached to an email from an unknown, suspicious, or untrustworthy source.
  2. Do not open any files attached to an email unless you know what it is, even if it appears to come from a friend or someone you know. Some viruses can replicate themselves and spread through email.
  3. Do not open any files attached to an email if the subject line is questionable or unexpected.
  4. Delete chain emails and junk email. Do not forward or reply to any of them.
  5. Do not download any files from an unknown, suspicious, or untrustworthy source.
