Hi, I have a Vista machine English (home premium) running Office 2007 English standard. I also installed Office 2000 professional Japanese and kept those programs I had not upgraded to Office 2007 (Access etc). Initially, I was not able to read most of the dialogue boxes of the 2000 programs. Some Japanese did show up, but most of the characters were mojibake, or garbage. After some fiddling around I was able to fix this without any apparent side effects. This was a couple of months ago. But in the last month, something has happened so that now I am getting Japanese language dialogue boxes when my programs first open or update. This applies to all programs, not just Office (itunes, adobe are two examples). I am computer competent but not an expert, I am knowledgeable enough to know that trying to retrace what might have happened is going to take more time than I want to spend, a lot more. I was hoping for a quick-ish fix. There are two language settings options under the two versions of microsoft office tools installed in my programs list (one English, office standard 2007, and one Japanese, office professional 2000. The Japanese version defaults to Japanese, the English version defaults to English. I am guessing that is where the conflict may lie, but I am not sure what to do about it. I have tried turning things on and off so that the English language version is dominant, but with no luck as yet. There are no language interface packs installed on the computer. It is essentially an English language machine. The Japanese language option is turned on for use with the keyboard, but it is not the default. I suspect the cause may be traced back to some of the fiddling I did to fix the initial Japanese language display problem, but I use the word 'fiddling' accurately. I am not sure I could accurately retrace those steps. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
