    Region and Language not working anymore.


    Hello i have bought a new computer with 8.1 . When i did the first setup and i had to choose the language i wanted italian but it wasn't there so i choose english and i downloaded the LP later. I installed all the updates inculded Update 1 and everything worked fine. After one week of normal use when i restarted the PC it sayed the was making operations on windows and it lasted like 20 min . I have the OS installed in SSD so it is fast. After the restart i opened events and saw and error for LP cleaner and CBS initialization.Later i did a restore and checked region and language in control panel and it was working. I opened LPKsetup and uninstalled le LP manually , after the restart Region and language didn't work. I checked for the file intl.cpl in c/windows and there was like 30 files there, in my other pc that has only one language installed there are only 5. Can you help me repair region and language so it can open?
    (I have formated my pc several times before this trying to fix the issuse thinking it was my fault deleting smth etc)
    Thank you and sorry for bad english.

    Hi,
    _You must have deeted something, i recommand you run the system file checker (SFC)pen cmd as admin then paste this:
    sfc /scannow.
    _If it didnt do anything then open cmd as admin again and type in:
    Chkdsk /r /f
    Then reboot Your PC and let the scan run (note That this will take a whole day depending on your HD size, i have a 500 GB disk used only 240 GB of it and the scan took me 8 hours to finnish so be patient)
    Hope that helps.
