    Windows Speech Recognition

    I ran a Mal ware program and restarted my computer. It did not start my Windows Speech Recognition App. I got this message. "Speech Recognition could not start the language configuration is not supported. The recognizer language must match the language of the user interface. Please change the recognizer language in the Speech Recognition Control Panel under Advanced Options." I think that I got into the Speech Recognition Control Panel and under "Language" it says Microsoft Speech Recognizer 8.0 for Windows (English-US). Can anyone tell me how to fix my Windows Speech Recognition? I use it with Microsoft Word and speak to it. It puts the words in the document as I speak. I check it out and make sure that every thing is correct and then print it. I like that feature on Windows 10 but I cannot use it anymore. Any help with a more savvy Windows 10 user would be appreciated. I want to use that feature again but it is screwed up.

    What anti-malware program was used and is there a log produced? Did it do something without user-prompt?

    The name of the program is Malwarebyte. I think that there is a log but I do not know how to get into it. It showed a bunch of files marked and when I clicked it put them in a "chest". Right after that my Windows Speech Recognition quit working. I can go back to Malwarebytes and click on "History" and can see when it was scanned. Other than that, I am in the dark.

    Malware Restore.

    I went to my Malware program, Malwarebytes, and went to "History"'. I found all of the files that the program took out. I clicked on all of the files that the program took out. I then clicked on "Restore". My Windows Speech Recognition started working again. I, in effect, put Malware back on my computer. I did not know which of the files was the file that started my Windows Speech Recognition back again so I had to restore all of the files from the date and time that I ran Malwarebytes. Is there any way to tell what file I needed to restore to have my Window Speech Recognition working again without restoring all of the files?
