    Changing windows language


    I have just bought a laptop in Spain for a relative who lives there but wants the language to be in English.

    I tried using the control panel to add a language but the download of the relevant pack stalled before it downloaded.
    So I found a download for the language pack but when I tried to install this the installation started but stalled almost immediately.

    Has anyone any suggestions as to what the problem might be?
