Hi guys, got a tought problem here. I'm running windows Xp home edition Sp2. Just recently, after a reboot, my language bar is "dead". By that i meant when i attempt to choose a different language other than english, it doesnt react. It just stays at english. Besides, every time i turn on the computer the language bar doesnt appear to be on the task bar(but it actually is, i had to right click to deselect the "language bar" option and right click it again to select it, this time it shows up). Does anyone know about this type of problem? I tried to configure the settings in Control Panel already and it didnt work. Thanks for your time.
