Why? I don't want your application adjusting my computer's settings, and I'm pretty sure noone else does either...

Why doing so? Bad idea! The system settings should be changed by the user or local administrators trusted by the user, nobody else, ever.

This is your application that should be responsible for correctly behavior regardless of Regional Settings. By the way, this is easy. All .NET application can work in any culture no matter what is set up in the OS. To do that, your thread(s) can assign desirable value to the properties CurrentUICulture and CurrentCulture, see:[^],[^].
