Well, I searched and read through all the language-related problems on this thread, but can't seem to find a solution to my problem.
Anyways, when I first got Windows 7, my laptop could read and type in Asian languages perfectly fine. But then after my computer installed two windows update back in late August, the next time I turned on my laptop, it couldn't read asian languages anymore.. and it only shows up as those boxes whenever I view my iTunes, or try to type in korean in notepad. But the thing is that when I go on the internet, asian characters show up just fine...
The solutions I've already tried is changing the font settings and unchecking the "hide fonts based on language settings. And I also tried uninstalling the two windows update that seemed to be causing the problem. When I restarted the computer, the solution seemed to work because I could read asian characters. However, this solution only lasted for a couple weeks, and today I can't read asian characters again. Also, it's not just asian characters, but some other unicode characters as well.
These are the two updates that I think caused the problem: Download details: Update for Windows 7 (KB2272691) Download details: Update for Windows 7 (KB982110)
I hope someone could help me find a solution to this!
Actually, I did google these two specific updates, and it seems as though those two windows updates have been giving other people problems as well.
