Freecell doesn't work

By Mr. Origami ·
I launch Freecell and the title bar reads 5 characters - a cents sign, an apostrophe, letter u with an accent mark, upsidedown question mark, and a thik pipe symbol - instead of "Freecell". Also - my cursor remains an hourglass while over the playing area. I can click the File menu and select New Game. The playing area fills with cards, but the cursor never changes from the hourglass and I can never play. The title bar never changes from the gibberish. This has actually happened on 2 of my machines, both Win98SE. I have removed all fonts, tried File System Restore from System Tools and reinstalled Freecell. I have also removed all gamed, rebooted, reinstalled all gamed, rebooted, and still no good.
No - I don't NEED Freecell - but I'd like to solve this problem for the sake of problem solving.

Look at Microsoft Knowledge Base article Q106715.

It's a log article, but it speaks specifically to FreeCell and the fact that the display is corrupted as soon as you run FreeCell.

(Actually FreeCell is a whole lot more fun... 1000 times better than Solitare! I'm running the games in sequence on my Pocket PC during part of lunch hour)

That Q article refers to an Win32s installation. I never installed this nor any SDK. A search of my drive for *32s* brings up only win32s16.dll - and I've already restored this file from the cabs. Thanks anyway.
