    Is US english same as international english?
    No.

    Judging by your local timezone, you need to choose "English", meaning US English.

    I'm in the UK so I have to download the "International English" version.

    Using the wrong one will appear to be OK but you'll find odd problems here & there.
    - Just for example, I was unable to get automatic spell-checking in forums such as this one after I'd used the wrong language ISO in a Repair install a few years ago.
    - I fiddled about and eventually got it working but I will only finally fix the problem if I reinstall Windows [which would also mean reinstalling all my applications, setting up Windows, setting up each application and not getting anything else done for a week].

    If you're missing the HKLM branch in regedit, then it may be time for a clean install instead.

    Hello @xandy,

    I agree with Brink. The time you will spend trying to investigate, test, and correct the problem, you could have Clean Installed and be up and running.

    The Registry is one of the Operating Systems MAIN Sources, and unless you know how to deal with Registry Hives, then you could do MORE damage than good, and be in a worse state than you are now.

    You could of course, create a System Image PRIOR to the Clean Install, and do NOT forget to Backup ANY folders or files that you can NOT afford to lose.

    I hope this helps.
