I had exactly the same problem on a Windows 7 64-bit machine. I accidently added the Asian language support and was left with three extra keyboard layouts after each restart (KOR, JPN, CHS). This is what I did to fix it:
Note: please read the whole thing before going step-by-step; you may find that starting with step 7 will be more comfortable for you rather than starting with step 1.
- Remove the Korean, Japanese and Chinese keyboards from the keyboard list
- Press Win-key + R to open the "run" command window
regedit then press ENTER - this will open the Windows Registry
Navigate to the following key:
You will find three items referring to:
"c:/program files/common files/microsoft/imei14/shared/imeklmg.exe /uninstall /CHS /log"
"c:/program files/common files/microsoft/imei14/shared/imeklmg.exe /uninstall /JPN /log"
"c:/program files/common files/microsoft/imei14/shared/imeklmg.exe /uninstall /KOR /log"
Delete all of them.
You may also find the same items from step 5 under:
If so, delete these as well.
If you are not confident with modifying the registry you may do the following instead of steps 2-6: deselect the above mentioned startup commands by doing this:
- Start > Control Panel > Administrative tools > System configuration
- In the System Configuration window go to the Startup tab
- Uncheck all items called "Microsoft Office IMEI 2010" that have the paths from step 5 under the "command" column
- You can always come back and re-check these items if you need to
Restart your computer
Hopefully after restarting you will no longer have the additional keyboards.
