How do I keep changing my language settings on Windows XP by accident?

I keep changing my language settings in Windows XP to English (US) or, even worse, Estonian by accident. I've got the language bar on and I need to keep it. I'm pretty sure I'm not accidentally clicking the bar. Is there any other way I could be doing this?
