Change interface language

Hi, I would like to change TotalProtection GUI interface to English (translation is terrible by the way) but retain my system main language. So I'm looking for a solution without changing my default system language.

Re: Change interface language

Hi @Perica 

Your computer's main language should be changed to English in the Control Panel/Clock, Language and Region as the McAfee installer reads that.

If above setting is in other language then try uninstalling McAfee and reinstall from Here - click My Account at top right and make sure the drop-down country remains United States at the top.

Re: Change interface language

Thanks for your reply,

McAffee is correctly installed with English installer, same computer (so same installer) just different account has English interface.

Due to work requirements for that user account it's not possible to change control panel language to English.

There are more than 50 various applications installed on that computer and most of them are localized however not one of them mandates this GUI language interface as McAffee does. Yes it's quite fine for installer to read default language at the installation time but it's not OK not to allow user to change interface language.

Are you saying there is no way (not even through registry) to change GUI language of the installed McAffee? If so that's a big defect on McAffee part, I emphasize that all other programs (from MS office to ERPs) allow interface language change.

Best regards,
