I want to know if it is correct this reg for removing a Language Keyboard, in Spanish by default we get "Español (alfabetización Tradicional) along Español (alfabetización Internacional) which is the correct one. I don't need both so I want to remove the former:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Keyboard Layout\Preload]
"2"="0000040a"

It seems to work from my tests on VM, but a RegShot showed more changes that I'm unsure I would need? I don't want to leave open regs or whatever.


edit: my bad, it should be
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Keyboard Layout\Preload]
"2"=-

Yes, that script will correctly delete ( remove ) the value that is named "2" and its data.

So for example, if that registry key contains these values ...

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Keyboard Layout\Preload]
"3"="Something"
"4"="Something"
"2"="Something"
"1"="Something"
"5"="Something"


After running that script it will look like this ...

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Keyboard Layout\Preload]
"3"="Something"
"4"="Something"
"1"="Something"
"5"="Something"


As long as the value named "2" does in fact contain the keyboard you want to delete ( as I don't know what "0000040a" actually represents ), you are correct.

... Let him who hath understanding reckon the Number Of The Beast ...

You might want to delete it in the Default user as well.
