Did you buy a Vista laptop from abroad and want it to talk to you in your mother language?
Try Vistalizator - this tool allows you to change display language in Vista editions other than (officially supported) Ultimate, like Starter, Home Basic, Home Premium and Business.
Vistalizator overrides the limit of one language on non-Ultimate Vista editions.

It sounds annoying, but Microsoft usually releases patches once a month.
Windows Search 4.0 nowadays is automatically installed via Windows Update on Vista SP1.
This update of the integrated search engine in Vista is causing a few troubles:
* Some Control Panel items fail to open
* When you right-click the desktop and try to select Personalize, it fails to open
* There is some missing information and blank column headers in Windows Explorer
Simply uninstall Windows Search 4.0 in Control Panel -> Programs -> View installed updates.
Requires system restart, but there is no need to reinstall any new language.
