by HollyField93 / February 4, 2013 7:38 PM PST

Hello my friends. Happy

I got a big problem with fonts here and need quick help. Happy Don't even know how to explain it but here some screen shots :
1- this is what i see when i press on any file properties
2- and this is when i turn on task manager or something like install wizards.

I already tried restore all defaults fonts, to delete corrupted fonts and re-install it (get error while deleting it), and tried to create reg file to restore fonts, none of these worked.
<span>Need help here..
And sorry for my English. Happy

you might have altered the appearance of various Windows Items for the display such as item font and size etc.

The default font face is Tahoma so make sure you still have it on your system.

Here is a link that should help you solve your problem but you really need to read completely through it before making any changes. The default settings are all listed toward the end of the article.
