    Wow! Your language appears to be a mix of Spanish and French and your region is "idioma?" Not even sure where that is but it appears to be a valid selection after Googling. I also see a drop-down menu on your screen that is not available on mine. Where the heck did you purchase this copy of Windows 8 and how did you install it? And where are you from?
