Hi,

I have 2 inputs languages in windows...
EN and FR
I keep on deleting EN but it always comes back.

Also, it doesnt really delete it, if another user connects to the machine,  it sees both...

Is there a file I can delete to make sure a specific languages is totally unavailable on a system unless it is reinstalled ?

Thanks

Start, settings control panel, regional options
Select details

Kill all signs of that pesky second language and apply

This will only remove it from the profile...

if someone else logs in with another username, the deleted language will still be there :(

Try configuring a new Default User profile.  (It won't apply to current users with a profile already, you'll have to go in and remove the input locale manually)

All further new users logging in, shouldn't get it from then on.
