Hello,

Basically, my problem is that I cannot open the Regional and Language Options in the Control Panel. I double click it and nothing happens. I have searched and searched but none of the solutions have worked. If anyone could help me fix this, it would be much apperciated. I personally think there is a problem with the registry. Also, I am a bit tech savvy so you guys can go ahead and lay it all down.

Thanks.


EDIT: Yes, intl.cpl exists.

You have some file corruption, try using the SFC /Scannow or Repair Install

Ok, I tried that and it turns out that the root of the problem is that "No Liability Accepted" Certificate has been expired. I've been looking for the solution to this on google for a while now and NONE of the sites I've visited had a straight up solution. Is there any advice you can offer now?

Do a full scan with an onine scanner like NOD32 or Kaspersy, this could be malware related.

Then you may need to reset your registry settings...
see https://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htm and go to # 194 on the right column (Language Bar - Restore).
Save it as a .reg file and run it (double click in explorer).

You can also try re-registering the language bar dll by running the following from the command line:

regsvr32 %SystemRoot%\\System32\\msutb.dll

I'm almost 100% sure its not a malware related issue. One, I regularly scan my computer and have Kaspersky as my main antivirus software. If this doesn't pick up anything, I will either run MBAM and if that doesn't pick up anything, I will do a combofix.

Also, I went to that website and ran the reg file. It didn't fix the issue but I have yet to restart my computer. hopefully that will do the trick.

I also typed the cmd in and that did not fix the issue either. I will restart my computer and get back to you.

Thank you very much for the help!!

Please DO NOT use combofix without supervision, that program can leave your system useless if used improperly.

Yes I understand that much. I always made sure to know what I was doing when using Combofix.


Also, when I restarted my computer, the regional and language options still did not open. Are there any other options that we can take?

Only thing left is Repair Installation. Some things to remember when doing a Repair install. Slipstreaming SP3 and removing IE7 or 8 first is critical.
