    I changed my language to Dutch and menu Live Messenger 2011 indeed in Dutch however ….. I live in Thailand, use Windows 7 Home Premium and have set country to The Netherlands. When opening Live Messenger and going to Today or Games I get answer in Thai language. My timezone is set for Bangkok. Any idea how to change this?
