Missing Language bar

Hi!
I am in need of some help to solve my language bar missing problem.
I have worked on this for quite sometime and have not been able to solve it. I have done all of the install and uninstall keyboards things from the control panel and also the regedit thing all to no avail.
I sure hope that someone out there can help me solve this problem.
Thanks in advance

Try this:

Language Bar - Hide or Show

Open Control Panel
Regional and Language
Click the Change keyboards... button
Click on the Language Bar tab
Select Floating on Desktop or Docked in the taskbar

See if that shows it for you.

Right-click on the taskbar>toolbar>check if the "language bar" is selected.
If no result, restart your system! Reboot helps to solve a lot of minor issues.

Go to the page of language bar setting (see ztrukr's post above) and try to remove any second language there.
Try also to check/uncheck the following: Hide bar/Flotting bar/docking bar and observe if this will result in any change.

After you have tried all of the above, without restarting your computer do the following:
In the search bar of the "Start" menu enter ctfmon.exe and press Enter.
Than simply run it by clicking on this file. No PC restart needed.
