I have some questions about adding and removing windows components and other software without the CD's. Non piracy related I hope.

My netbook started off with windows and has been through a couple of Linux incarnations.
For multiple reasons I took it to a computer guy here in Guatemala to put windows xp on.
First problem is the operating system is in spanish..would much prefer it in English. Also the keyboard layout is very difficult to use for English. Is there any way I get these in English?
Second I would like to unsintall outlook and internet explorer to avoid security holes. Is this valid and how can I do this?
Third, they put a bundled antivirus product..It's called ESET security but I think it might be based on Norton. I started uninstalling it, then my computer crashed.
Now it won't uninstall because windows can't recognise that it is installed, however it is still running. Normally I would install again then uninstall, but I don't have the CD.
It's not really practical to download windows from torrent sites etc as my connection is too slow.
Thanks for your help.
