I'm on Windows 2000, and having a problem with the option enabling various input locales for the keyboard.

I have a shortcut to change between different input locales. I know this shortcut works, as hitting it a few times leaves me typing cyrillic characters.

The problem comes, however, in the shape of the taskbar icon, or rather, its conspicuous absence. Despite clicking the "Enable indicator on taskbar" option, there is no taskbar icon. I have also tried disabling it, and enabling it again. This is incredibly annoying, as some of the input locales I use are very similar, and it is hard to distinguish between them.

My computer recently contracted a virus, and in repairing it, I may have accidentally deleted a necessary program, but I'm not sure. A quick HouseCall scan told me the virus had been removed, yet this problem remains, so it might stem from that.

The only other possible cause I can think of was a recent blue screen, which seems to have stopped my games from running. But don't worry about that, that's a whole different post! :p

Any help would be very much appreciated, I'm close to tearing my hair out!
Thanks!
