It doesn't really sound legitimate that she's signing into multiple locations. Out of
curiosity, what happens if your acquaintance signs in using another computer at a different
location? There's no real specific issue that would cause this to happen really.
Regarding the language thing, Messenger uses a single DLL for language localization, which in
the latest version is msgslang.14.0.8089.0726.dll in the Messenger folder. As such, if you
collect all the DLLs (sorry I don't know anyone hosting this at this time) from all the
language installs, you can copy over the one you want prior to starting Messenger and get the
interface in the language you desire "on demand".
