    How do I completely get rid of a installed language as this is what happens in my case under Windows 10 Home x64 with Fall Creators Update:

    1) This is what it looks like now:

    5) You would think it was removed but when I refresh the page:

    Chinese (Traditional) Supplemental Fonts has a uninstall button and when I click on it, it does uninstall and this is what the page shows afterwards even after closing and opening it again:

    From another website, it says one can run lpksetup /u from a admin command prompt which shows this:

    I am actually trying to get this done as I am trying to troubleshoot Cortana's search box responding slowly which cam either accept the input or it will take forever before what I type shows up whenever I have NJStar Communicator from NJStar Communicator Version 3.30 | NJStar Software running but without NJStar running, Cortana's search will work fast. NJStar Support is unable to reproduce the problem so not sure if it might be the built-in language support in Windows 10 that might be causing the problem or not. I have already completely resetted Cortana using the instructions here:

    Thanks for any help in advance!
