Symptoms
You are running a computer on which the Greek version of Windows Vista was preinstalled by the manufacturer. However, you notice that certain elements of the user interface are not displayed as expected. Specifically, certain elements of the user interface contain English text, text that is truncated, or linguistic errors.

Most preinstalled systems are not affected by this problem. To determine whether you are experiencing these symptoms, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start Start button, and then click Help and Support.
  2. Under Πληροφορίες από τη Microsoft, click Εύρεση των αρχείων και των φακέλων σας.

  4. Under Για να φιλτράρετε τα αρχεία σας, view the text that is displayed in the image.
The image contains the English words "Sort" and "Group." If these words are displayed in Greek as "Ταξινόμηση" and "Ομαδοποίηση," you are not experiencing this problem.
