Some Windows Fonts Have gone Haywire

By wbs_aus ·
Hi, A few days ago I started my computer (P3 500 w/Win 9 and I had some strange things happen which may be caused by a corrupted font. All software still runs normally so the changes are minor but a problem nonetheless.

Here are the symptoms:
-The Minimize, Maximize and Close buttons on all windows have been replaced with a "0", "1" and "p"
-All arrows on the start menu have been replaced with "8"
-Most check boxes have been replaced with a squiggly line that changes slightly when checked
-One of the main fonts in Internet Explorer 5 has changed to what looks like a CGA font (very blocky)

I can't remember anything else that I've noticed but these can be a nuisance

Can anyone tell me how to fix or how to reinstall the Win 98 fonts.
