Search in Windows Explorer display folder name in other language

My computer was installed with Swedish operating system. I changed it to English.

In Windows Explorer i see C:\Users, but when i use the search function (in Windows Explorer)...it gives me C:\Användare (swedish for Users) in the result.

How do I get the search result in English?

It was all about Indexing. When I turned off "Index searching", then it showed me C:\Users in the result.

It's possible to Rebuild the Index, and that is a tip if you have changed language and want to keep Index when searching.
