    I recently downloaded a few programs from download.com and, since then, the language used for file conformations etc. in WordPad is German, not the English which it normally is.
    I checked the language I had set for my computer via the Control Panel and, as it has always been, it was still English as I want it to be.
    So far the switch to German has only been seen in the WordPad word processing program that's part of Windows.
    I regularly scan my computer for pests/spyware and viruses and it appears clean.
    Ironically, however, I suspect that it may have been a spyware-removal program which I downlaoded from download.com which changed the language without asking!

    what kind of spyware removal program are you using? i recommend using spybot-S&D or adaware if you aren't using them already.
