That'd mean you'd have to run two MSNs at once. And you can't do that cause running 2 EXTACT SAME programs at once creates errors, and windows doesn' allow it. Even running a different IM service can cofnuse your computer. So you can only have 1 MSN up at a time.

Default ok...

Click the language tab and see if it says US in the box in the middle. If it does then click add and add the UK setting then remove the US setting.
