hi

there is no way you can get that OS to work in other languages.

Solution: buy a copy of Win 98 (second addition if still available) and do a reinstall. You should be able to do this over the top of your current installation. Unfortunately, depending on specs, your PC will probably be too old and slow to run Win 2000 or XP.

Fairly certain that win95 doesn't support multiple languages so you will need an english version of the operating system. (Win 95 is old so you may well find somebody has a copy that they don't use anymore as I doubt if you will be able to buy it)

It's Windows 95. This I can probably change as I'm using 98, 2000 and XP also but obviously not on the kids' machine.

As to what is in Swedish, basically all.  For example if you right click the start key things come up in Swedish, ie to 'explore' must be done in Swedish, to change screeen resolution etc.  Only things like excel and word are in english.

What exactly is in Swedish and also, what version of Windows are you running?
