I have installed Windows Xp professional in my pc  with two languages - English (default) and  Greek. i can switch between the two states either with the mouse( (through the task bar) or by using the ALT + SHIFT keys from the keyboard. In the last days there are moments where i cant type any Greek character even if both languages seems to exist in the task bar. i have to restart the pc to enabe the Greek character set support again or to begin the language setup process again . The most common case is the loss of the Greek language support but there are moments where i cant switch from Greek to English

Any advice concerning this matter is welcome

try using microsoft windows update and download the optional language packs they have on there...your language pack is probably outdated would be my best guess. go to microsoft.com and look under windows update and search for any drivers you may need. get back to me and tell me if it helped if you downloaded the updated packs. thanks!
