I installed the program in English but it opens in a foreign language. How do I set it back to English?

October 19th, 2015

If you have installed Spybot in a foreign language, you can change the language back to English  from within Spybot’s Settings.

This may be difficult as the program is in a different language so the instructions are slightly misleading.

To change the language please do the following:

– Open the Spybot “Start Center”.

Start Center 2.4- Settings

– Click “Advanced User Mode”.

– Go to “Settings”.

– Then click on the “Language” tab.

You can then select your desired language.

Settings - Languages

Alternatively you could reinstall Spybot.

The 1st window of the installer allows you to select what language you would like to install Spybot in.
