iTunes updates in Chinese -- help

When I am offered a new update for iTunes, the instructions come across in Chinese characters. My friend, who speaks Chinese after living in China for several years, used to use my computer to speak with friends back there, and I think he's done something to my language settings that make iTunes default to Chinese in this case.

The program works fine once I download it, but I'd like to get the instructions back in English.

Redownload iTunes from the american apple website and check your computers language/country. If that dosent work restore your iPod maybe you updated to a chinese firmware?

It's a PC (Sony Vaio, 3-4 years old) running on WindowsXP Professional version 5.1.

I don't want to uninstall and reinstall a bunch of stuff. At some point, we had solved this, but then my friend used my computer for a week and ... update messages in Chinese again.

I think you need to ask your friend what he did and undo it. He obviously goes into some language settings every time he uses your computer.

Sorry I can't be of more help. It's stories like yours that make me glad I use a Mac.
