    To close the Language bar (using Classic view in Control Panel):
    1.       Click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Regional and Language Options.
    2.       On the Languages tab, under Text services and input languages, click Details.
    3.       Under Preferences, click Language Bar.
    4.       Deselect the Show the Language bar on the desktop check box.

    You can try Taskbar Repair Tools plus:!.htm

    Also try sfc

    Start Button---> Run---> Cmd
    Type sfc/Scannow

    If everything else fails do a restore...

    Hope this helps :)
