    Windows 8.1 changes language settings by itself


    Hi.

    I am from Sweden, so my default language setting (keyboard layout) is Swedish.
    For some reason Windows 8.1 changes this setting to English.
    I have tried to install and then uninstall the English keyboard layout (so that Swedish is the only one available) but Windows doesn't care if the layout is actually installed or not. Here is a screenshot:

    Windows changes this setting on a whim, it seems to happen the most when starting up the computer. I had this problem with Windows 8 as well.

    Anyone know how to fix it?
    Thanks in advance.
