Language Bar missing -REGULAR MICROSOFT BUG!

My system just ran into a new problem on my system. It is related to some problem with Windows XP installation. I had just recently installed windows xp on my pc. I was recently updating drivers and managing other settings. But it looks there is some problem with the system. I cannot see the language bar. I tried to went back in the language settings and tried to enable the same back again but that did not worked. The toolbar is checked here but still nothing works. What should I do.

For that you have to go in control panel. In that look for regional and language options first. Just click on the language tab and then look for text services. Go in the input language section and click on details. You will have to look for Preferences there. Again click on language. The bar will appear on the desktop. You just have to tick on show the language bar on desktop check box that's all.

Re: Language Bar missing -REGULAR MICROSOFT BUG!

This link is really useful but unfortunately I had a more sophisticated case. Because I didn't find any solutions I tried to find out it by myself. I wrote a Howto:

This howto describes how to reveal the disppeared language toolbar on Windows XP Pro
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1. On your system, find a user having that toolbar. (It is considerable to take a look on the Administrator also.) If you can not find any, this howto will not help you.
2. Sign in to the user having the language toolbar. Start regedit and export the whole HKCU\Software\Microsoft\CTF tree. (HKCU is HKEY_CURRENT_USER but I hope it's known. Other, please consider calling a computer expert.) Save this file on a place your other users can access. My file looks like this:

Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\CTF]

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\CTF\Assemblies]

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\CTF\LangBar]
"ShowStatus"=dword:00000004

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\CTF\MSUTB]
"Left"=dword:000003b5
"Top"=dword:00000000
"Vertical"=dword:00000000
"ShowDeskBand"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\CTF\Sapilayr]
"ProfileInitialized"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\CTF\TIP]

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\CTF\TIP\{DCBD6FA8-032F-11D3-B5B1-00C04FC324A1}]

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\CTF\TIP\{DCBD6FA8-032F-11D3-B5B1-00C04FC324A1}\LanguageProfile]

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\CTF\TIP\{DCBD6FA8-032F-11D3-B5B1-00C04FC324A1}\LanguageProfile\0x00000409]

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\CTF\TIP\{DCBD6FA8-032F-11D3-B5B1-00C04FC324A1}\LanguageProfile\0x00000409\{09EA4E4B-46CE-4469-B450-0DE76A435BBB}]
"Enable"=dword:00000000

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\CTF\TIP\{DCBD6FA8-032F-11D3-B5B1-00C04FC324A1}\LanguageProfile\0x0000040e]

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\CTF\TIP\{DCBD6FA8-032F-11D3-B5B1-00C04FC324A1}\LanguageProfile\0x0000040e\{09EA4E4B-46CE-4469-B450-0DE76A435BBB}]
"Enable"=dword:00000000

3. Sign off and sign in to your user to repair.
4. Start regedit and check HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run. If there is no starting key for ctfmon.exe create one. The name must be ctfmon.exe and the content defaultly can be C:\WINDOWS\system32\ctfmon.exe
5. At http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htm find Language Bar Remove - Restore. Download the restore file and import it. The file looks like this:

Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{540D8A8B-1C3F-4E32-8132-530F6A502090}]
@="Language bar"
"MenuTextPUI"="@%SystemRoot%\\System32\\msutb.dll,-325"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{540D8A8B-1C3F-4E32-8132-530F6A502090}\Implemented Categories]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{540D8A8B-1C3F-4E32-8132-530F6A502090}\Implemented Categories\{00021492-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{540D8A8B-1C3F-4E32-8132-530F6A502090}\InProcServer32]
@="C:\\WINDOWS\\System32\\msutb.dll"
"ThreadingModel"="Apartment"

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
"NoSaveSettings"=dword:00000000

6. Delete the whole HKCU\Software\Microsoft\CTF tree. Import the file you exported at 2.
7. Sign off and sign in. (Sign off means sing off not change user.) The language toolbar would appear.
