You changed the regional settings for YOU, while YOU were logged in. ASP
doesn't run as YOU, it runs under the account IUSR_machineName. You *could*
alter that account so you can control the password, then log in as that
user, and change the regional settings there... but those can still be
overridden by other logins or when users access your site via
authentication.

Instead of relying on regional settings, make your ASP application aware of
what Locale you want to present dates and numbers in. This article deals
with dates but applies equally to numbers.
