Posting in Tamil

My system did not have any Tamil fonts. I installed Microsoft's Language Interface Pack. I'm able to use Tamil as a keyboard...ஆனால், now my damned windows interface has gone for a toss. I've been trying with the Language & Regional Options applet to change my UI language back to English to no avail! Windows XP is supposed to be having a "UI / menu language" listbox on the language tab. It's not there, I swear!

MS Word Woes

I've been editing a word document that I need to submit by EOD. This document is having lots of screenshots documenting an existing application. Now, word has an annoying habit of showing only blank spaces for the screenshots. I click them and it shows me an outline (a placeholder where the image is supposed to be!) The background refreshes are so bad that I have to click on the image each time and scroll up and down a couple of times to get it to show. It's maddening and I am getting madder by the minute.
