Unwanted keyboard layouts RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I use windows 7 home with an asus G73-JH laptop and for some reason when I start playing, English(US) and Chinese Keyboard start appearing for no reason. This happens with most games I own, right now I can think of Starcraft 2, Team Forteress 2, Darkspore, and I think Age of Empires 3. Also it does not seem to happen all the time, I have to play for a while and then sometimes it happens and sometimes it doesn't. I tried going into Text Services and Input Settings, but they do not appear: 

     

    I tried to add and then remove them, it works but they keep coming back so I deleted the registry keys in [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet002\Control\Keyboard Layouts] and [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet002\Control\Keyboard Layout\DosKeybCodes] but they come back, I tried to check in [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Keyboard Layout\Preload] but I don't understand what I should change.

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Keyboard Layout\DosKeybCodes]
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Keyboard Layouts]
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet002\Control\Keyboard Layout\DosKeybCodes]
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet002\Control\Keyboard Layouts]
