I have upgraded to Windows 8 Pro from Windows 7 Home Premium. Recently, I noticed that there's 2 input language methods in my computer (English and Vietnamese):


But I don't want to use that built-in Vietnamese input method of Microsoft, I want to remove it, so I went to Language page, but what I saw is there's no Vietnamese entry there?


I tried myself for a while, then I found the solution:

  • Add Vietnamese input method
  • Remove it again

Then I got this (Keyboard button is disabled):


I would like to set my computer like that, but after restarting my computer, it gets back like the first picture again, I don't know why, it should be like I set it before I restart my computer.

Anyone can explain or give a solution to remove the Vietnamese entry?

If you click the Options link for English (US), what does it say? See if any Vietnamese input methods are perhaps added. –  Karan Dec 21 '12 at 18:42
Did you mean the first picture? If you meant so, then it says nothing, nothing change if I choose Vietnamese or English, still US Keyboard input method. And yes, I added Vietnamese input method once, and even installed Vietnamese language pack, and I removed it already, but the Vietnamese input method still remains? –  LeoLink Dec 22 '12 at 1:49
