You can hide it from the control panel with the following steps.

Go to Control Panel.
Open the Regional and Language Options Dialog
Go to Keyboards and Laguages (tab) > Change Keyboard > Language bar (tab) > under Language bar

Hope this helps

The following registry entries should disable it also.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
 

[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{540D8A8B-1C3F-4E32-8132-530F6A502090}]

@="Language bar"

"MenuTextPUI"="@%SystemRoot%\\System32\\msutb.dll,-325"
 

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]

"NoSaveSettings"=dword:00000000

Open in new window

I found that the additional Language bar icons can be disabled by the following registry key

[HKEY_USERS\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\CTF\LangBar]
"ExtraIconsOnMinimized"=dword:00000000

Thanks for your assistance.
