I am extremely frustrated at losing 1.5 hours to a puzzle that seems to afflict XP alot (from googling). When I use my admin account, I added a French keyboard, but there is no language icon on the system tray. When I access the I can right-click the taskbar, choose Toolbars, then choose the language bar, but it never becomes checked, and the language icon never appears. No error, no informative message explaining why, it just doesn't respond. I can go to Start- >ControlPanel->RegionalAndLanguageOptions->Languages->Details- >Preferences, but the LanguageBar button is always grayed out (even after rebooting). I don't have this problem on my nonadmin account. It seems ridiculous that such a simple thing should take so much effort to try and achieve. That's 1.5 hours (at least) out of an already short night of sleep, so I'm just super pissed at the design of this feature. Can someone please suggest something what inane thing I might be overlooking? Much thanks.
