Scrambled characters on command buttons.

By PC Link ·
A friend has Windows ME an the command buttons (maximize, restore, close) as well as other buttons are illegible. They have scrambled characters on them, so you can't tell what they are. I haven't started my troubleshooting yet but I thought I wouldask on here for quick tips in case anyone has ran across this before. Thanks in advance.

The font file that windows uses for that function is corrupt. You may have or have had a virus. How recently did this occur?? The file might have been corrupted when a cold boot was forced by an application not responding.

I believe the specific font involved is Marlett. Try reinstalling that one font and see what happens.
