Well, Unicode is a system of encoding fonts for multiple languages. Chinese, Japanese, Russian and English all use very different characters/glyphs, for example, and Unicode is a way of including all of those characters/glyphs in a single file so that the computer can pick the right characters for the selected language.
If you're getting some kind of unicode message, odds are you're trying to use some file in a different language from what the computer is set to, so it wants to know what character set to use out of the font files.
Every time I try to download something or unzip something, etc, the dialogue box that pops up is in what I believe is called unicode, so I don't know what to press at all.
I am using a borrowed laptop from my boss. It is an ACER Aspire E1 with windows 7. I am in Thailand, so the computer was possibly in Thai at one point, but now it is mostly in English.
Any suggestions on how to fix this would be greatly appreciated! Thank you
