It's 50% default. You could use the REG file in step 2 of OPTION TWO in the tutorial below to restore these two items to their default fonts for dialog boxes.

Strange. Do you have Segoe UI listed in the C:\Windows\Fonts folder?

Looks like it was deleted. Here's a copy from my system in a ZIP file below. You would just need to download the ZIP to your desktop, open the ZIP, drag and drop the files to your desktop, then right click on each on of the extracted font files and install them. Afterwards, it should show up again.
