Windows 7 support has ended

Get Windows 10 to continue receiving support.

Upgrade now

Language Bar shows when User Account Control pops up, supposed to be hidden.

I have been looking for an answer to this one unsuccesfully so if this question has already been answered please point me in the right direction. I chose to hide the language bar after a reinstall of windows 7 but every time the User account control pops up I see the language bar sitting there, taunting me. I see no option to close it, only to hide it. It does not show during normal activity, only when the user account control comes up to ask if I want to allow a program to run. It's driving me nuts.

Many thanks in advance

Old post I know but I can't believe no one could help you guys, I recently noticed this was happening on my pc, have no idea why but I assume it was something to do with installing/un-installing new software. Anyway here's the solution, as I don't think these guys have a clue what you're on about, obviously, lol.

Click:

Start
Control Panel
Clock, Language and Region
Regional and Language Options
Keyboards and Languages
Change Keyboards...
Language Bar
Hidden
OK

Now go back to Regional and Language options and click:

Administrative
Copy to reserved accounts

*Type password* and click:

System Accounts
OK
OK

If for some reason you don't see any password for the Copy to reserved accounts option, and instead you have this pop up with check boxes:

Copy  your regional and language settings to these accounts:

Default user account (new users)
System accounts (local system, local service, and network service)
Just tick both of them and ok.

Voila no more annoying Language Bar on UAC anymore.
