Windows XP


Hi everyone.
I've been trying to help a friend of mine in quebec over the telephone with a computer problem she's been having. I've been having trouble since I don't have a French version of windows so I'm not sure what certain screens are called and how to explain (she doesn't speak any English). Hopefully you all can help with the following windows terms.


Start (the start button) ---->
Control Panel ---->
Add/Remove Programs ---->
Remove (the remove button) ---->
Run (in the start menu) ---->
Documents and Settings (the folder) ---->

I think that's all I'll need. Basically I'm trying to expain how to remove a piece of software and then remove an associated folder from her local folder (C:/documents and settings/jsmith).

Any help you all could provide would be really appreciated, or does anyone know where i could find some French Windows screen shots?

Thanks again.
