    Go to system preferences/language & text/language and use the Edit button to uncheck the box for русскии and then restart.

    When using Settings/Preferences/Language & Text, you have the choices to select which languages are used and which take precedence. I'd start by moving English to the top of that list.

    Use the camera icon to post a screenshot so we can see what you are talking about.

    Try renaming the drives yourself by clicking on their names.  Otherwise I think you would have to reinstall.

    Recovery?

     

    Do you mean a backup you created? Time Machine?

     

    That's not the hidden Lion Recovery volume, is it? I don't think you should be able to see/change that unless you start over and reformat/reinstall....it's tricky with the built-in rescue partition. Can you get that computer to the nearest Apple Store for help there?
