CIA hacker stopped by Windows popup box, in Chinese

CIA hackers may have been stopped by a Windows popup box in Chinese, according to a recent Wikileaks. For those of us that know Chinese, this is amusing.

A dialogue box in Chinese had kept popping up on screen as the agent tried to install a test program on a computer running the Windows operating system. Unable to understand what the box said, he tried everything from setting the system region to an English-speaking zone to forcing the program installer to use English.
