Setting up English - US for Speech Recognizer and Regional and Language Options

If you get the following error:

The language for the grammar does not match the language of the speech recognizer.

The error is because the Speech Recognizer and Regional and Language Options do not match.  Follow the steps below to set the Language to English - US in both Control Panel dialogs.  Currently, Killers VoiceCommand only supports English - US but Killers Software may support other languages in the future.
