    Hi,

    I have Windows XP and live in Greece. Whenever I install the nvidia drivers (40.71) a greek version is installed. Is there any way not to install the greek version, but the english one?

    thanks
    Yannis

    Just go to regional settings and change your language there to english, that's about it! :wink:

    A better approach is to kill the localized resource and help files. For Greek, language code is "el." There are two places with such files:

    %WINDOWS%\system32 (such as c:\window\system32):

    del nv*el.dll

    %WINDOWS%\Help (such as c:\windows\Help):

    del nv*el.hlp

    That doesn't work, strangly enough. I have an english version of WindowsXP, and i've set my language to English, but it still displays all the driver tabs in norwegian. Really annoying. I think I'll test Pcchen solution too.
