Hi, Open control panel then double click on,

Regional and language

You can change the settings from there,

Unfortunately User Interface (menus and dialogues) will remain in the Dutch language.

To do what you require needs the Multilingual User Interface Pack (MUI)from Microsoft but it is not available as retail. (Also Win XP Pro can handle this and not the home version - anyway this is immaterial in your case)

Below is some background reading, but you will need to purchase an English version OF Win XP.
