Howdy. I installed some Vista updates the other day and I think one of them was an IE update... (I don't normally use IE, just Opera and Firefox)

However now I have the language bar installed and from time to time it changes my input language to Chinese and I have to click on the toolbar to change back to English.

As far as I know it's nothing I've done to encourage this change. I cannot edit the langauges installed to remove Chinese, indeed as far as I can tell Vista would only normally install the Chinese langage if I had a reigonal version of Vista... which I don't think I do (but this being a new laptop who knows what it came with...)

I've googled and found suggestions to check the language settings within IE but to no avail, it only has the English language setting there.

Anyone got any suggestions? It's starting to get annoying now!

Cheers :)

can you right-click the language bar and get into some settings? perhaps remove the language bar from your startup items - run msconfig to see startup items and services
