    Internet Explorer 8 is included in my new Windows 7, but not in the right
    language. I would like to have an Internet Explorer with English texts. How
    can I change that?

    Thanks for your answers. And it is not possible to download a new Internet
    Explorer 8 for my Windows 7 (with the right language)?

    The message I got was the OP was not asking about "input" languages.

    Are you running Windows 7 Ultimate or are you running an English-language
    version of another Windows 7 edition (e.g., Win7 Home Premium; Win7
    Starter)?

    I am running Win 7 Home Premium. All the texts of the (included) Internet
    Explorer are in the wrong language, dialog boxes, menus (Is that called
    display language?) My idea was to download a new English Internet Explorer 8,
    but maybe that is not possible.

    What do you mean with "the wrong language"?

    Are the texts in the Internet Explorer not the same as all other texts
    in your operating system? Do you mean you have a German or French system,
    for example, and you call German or French "wrong" and would have liked
    English instead?

    Other people will call English "the wrong language". So it is important
    to write what system language you have, what you expected to get, and
    why you call it "wrong".

    Is it an English-language version of Win7 Home Premium, Sara?

    It is an English-language version of Win7 Home Premium, but I bought it in
    Germany.
    Yes, the texts in the Internet Explorer are not the same as all other texts
    in the system. The display language of the Internet Explorer 8 is German,
    which is (for me) the wrong language. I would like to have the English
    version of Internet Explorer 8.
    I thought, I could solve the problem by downloading a new Internet Explorer
    or changing the language, but none of this seems to be possible. (Or maybe I
    don't know how to do it.)

    Ooo, that is a sticky wicket, all right. Here are a few suggestions:

    1. Post here for better guidance (preferably from a MS engineer):
    http://social.answers.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/w7install/threads

    2. If you bought the computer at a retail outlet (i.e., a store or PX), take
    it back and have them make things right under terms of your Warranty. If
    you bought it online (e.g., from dell.com), contact the manufacturer's tech
    support under terms of your Warranty for assistance.

    3. If the computer's no longer under Warranty, you could back-up your data
    to removable media and then try a clean install of Win7 using the disks that
    came with the computer or the hidden Recovery partition. (Detailed
    instructions available, just ask.)
