Windows 7: Japanese characters aren't showing in Explorer anymore

Japanese characters aren't showing in Explorer anymore

What the title says. Recently for some reason, Japanese characters aren't displaying for files I have in Explorer, just showing as squares.

They still show fine in my browser and such, but yeah.

Changed my locale to Japanese and it looked fine, changed back, looked fine. But they're gone again.

How can I get them to stick around? I have a lot of files with Japanese characters, and this has always worked for me..but now doesn't. Rather annoying.
