This article has been archived. It is offered "as is" and will no longer be updated.
Consider the following scenario. You have a computer that is running Microsoft Windows XP Professional with Service Pack 2 (SP2). You have the Multilingual User Interface Pack (MUI) installed on the computer. You press CTRL+ALT+DELETE to open the Windows Security dialog box, and then you click Shut Down. In this scenario, the text of the Shut Down Windows dialog box does not appear in the language that you have set in the MUI. If you close the Shut Down Windows dialog box and the Windows Security dialog box, and then you reopen the Windows Security dialog box, the text in this dialog box also does not appear in the language that you have set in the MUI. The text does not appear in the correct language until you log off and log on again.
Note If you open the Shut Down Windows dialog box by clicking Start and then clicking Shut Down, the text in the dialog box appears in the correct language.
