System protection is a functionality that on a regular basis makes and backs up data regarding your computer’s system data, applications, drivers, and registry settings as restore points for every drive that possess the system protection functionality switched on. You can utilize these restore points to perform a system restore to revert these items to a former state just in time without impacting personal files. Restore points are created right before critical system incidents, such as the installation of an application or device driver. They’re also made by Windows by using a planned job once in every seven days if no other restore junctions were made in the former seven days, but you can make restore junction manually at any point of time.

But I changed my mind and wanna keep the russian version. And whenever I have to restart the system, will Office change into English. If yes, then how I cancel that change.
    P.S I have an install package of english version, but russian.
