Windows 7: Windows 7 isn't displaying foreign fonts correctly

Windows 7 isn't displaying foreign fonts correctly

I've installed the pacts, and on the first day, all the chinese characters were correct, but now they're all squares. Even when I go to the regions and languages option in control panel, it's squares (see attachment). What gives? This is Windows 7, 64 bit.

Thanks in advance!!
