Not deleting fonts
I went through your latest instructions and realized at the end of your instructions, you mentioned that hopefully this makes it legible. These instructions are under the assumptions that I am working with a screen with illegible text (e.g. symbols, etc.)
I have already did a system restore to a point without the problem so I would not know if this had the desired effects.
I would like to find out what is causing my laptop to display these symbols whenever I either update windows or on occasions when I restart or boot up the machine.
I apologize if I did not mention this earlier. I am getting very frustrated with this issue because it has happened about 4 times now.
Please help in any way possible and thank you again.
