Should you use the mailblocks package and expect a response from me,
you should preauthorize the dissensoftware.com domain.

I very rarely bother responding to challenge/response systems,
especially those from irresponsible companies.

In Internet Explorer select Tools, Internet Options. On the General tab
click the Languages button. Make sure that English is the first language
in the list. If it isn't, select it and click Move Up until it is at the
top, or add it if necessary.

If everything was already OK there, it might also be your regional
settings. Open Regional and Language Options in the Control Panel. Make
sure you have the correct language specified is specified there an all
tabs.

Finally you can also change the language of choice directly on the
windowsupdate site. Go to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com and click the
settings link on the left. There make sure that English is selected. If
it isn't, select it and click the apply button that is found on the bottom
right corner of the page.

Tools | Internet Options | Languages (on the General tab)
Make sure English is at the top.

I guess I had to do a restart after selecting English.

Is this that a script can change or does it require an active-x? I did look at
an Italian site.
