Can't figure out how to change language setting, my XP is stuck in Korean! help! anybody? please?

so i inheirited a laptop that is in Korean. I was told that it was a setting that had been changed & it was not the actual Korean version of windows. But everything I've tried so far kind of proves otherwise. Can anyone help?
i know it's a stupid problem to have but it's a problem none the less.
thanks in advance

Here is what is says under "system info"

Microsoft Windows XP
Professinal K
Version 2002
Service Pack 3


can anyone tell me does that mean it's a korean version of windows or did a setting get changed? and either way, how do i get it back to english windows.

  2. Indeed, the "K" version is a Korean localization, though it can be achieved through tweaking the OS manually.

    Download the correct language pack, and change the localization.

    Changes to the Windows registry
    The K versions of Windows XP contain the following registry subkey:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup\WindowsFeatures
    The following registry entries are associated with this subkey:

    Value name: KWeblinks
    Value type: REG_DWORD
    Value data: 0

    These registry entries are used to identify Windows XP K SKUs. When it is present, the KWebLinks=dword:0 registry entry identifies the Windows XP operating system as a K version.

    Note In earlier versions of Windows XP, the KWebLinks=dword registry entry is not present, or the registry entry is set to a value of 1.
