    Hi all,

    I have searched all over the net for a solution and can't find one. First, a description of the problem:
    The Language Bar is showing up fine. I can use Chinese and alternative English keyboard layouts without any problems. However, I can't use Japanese at all. It is not even shown as an option when I click the button to change languages. Furthermore, keyboard shortcuts don't work.

    I got it to show the Japanese option when I "restored" the Language Bar, right clicked it, and turned it vertical, but after turning it back to horizontal, the option disappeared. Desperate to get it back, I turned it back to vertical. It's no longer there either way!

    I heard that a Windows Vista Update removed some guy's Japanese language support completely. He fixed it with System Restore. But I'm using Windows XP Pro and there's so many updates I don't know when to restore to and I don't want to restore.

    Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
