I need help - My computer does not read Cyrillic

Hi,

My computer does not read Cyrillic. I added the Cyrillic font from Region and Language and I can write in Cyrillic but the computer can't read the language ,it shows me this: , èçị̂çàä.

I know that I don't need to install a Cyrillic package on the computer because Windows 7 already has it. I just need to know how to add it.

I would appreciate it if someone can help me.

Thank you.

In Internet Explorer:

1. Go to View > Encoding > select Cyrillic Windows (or KOI-8)
2. Also, go to Tools > Internet options > General tab > Languages > add Russian to the list

Thank you for your reply but the problem is not in the internet explorer, it is in the computer. I have no problem reading Cyrillic in the internet, I have problem with programs on the computer and I know that somehow I can add Cyrillic but I am not sure how.

Another problem that I have besides the dictionary is also the subtitles. They are not working as well. Please help.

I'm confused as to what you want your computer to do. It sounds like you want to type in Cyrillic and have it appear in some other language??

If you're speaking of movie Subtitles, those are embedded in the video and can't be changed.

Sorry, I will try to explain myself better this time.

I added the Cyrillic from the language and region and I can type in Cyrillic now but the windows its self doesn't read the Cyrillic. For example my dictionary doesn't read it. The subtitles for the movies are weird symbols as well (and I know it is not from the video or the player)
Long time ago someone fixed it for me, they added the Russian from C:/Windows....(or maybe not exactly the windows folder but I remember it was in C I don't remember where exactly.
I just have problems with programs that I install on the computer and have Cyrillic. I hope you understand what I mean.

Ok, I think. Go ahead and instal Cyrillic language pack if you haven't tried that.
And as this was suggested as well I need help - My computer does not read Cyrillic
