Windows 7: Chinese characters showing up as squares, never happened before

Chinese characters showing up as squares, never happened before

Hi,

I just noticed that files with Asian characters started showing up as squares a few days ago. I've never had any issues with Windows 7 before in two years.

So I've tried the fix where I switch the Region and Language to Chinese and then back to English, but that was only a temporary fix. Once I turned the computer off, and turned it back on the Chinese/Japanese characters were gone and I got squares again.

So, can anyone help me? Thanks.

Windows 7 Home Premium, 64-bit. Service Pack 1 is installed, and I don't need to type in Asian languages. I just want programs to display the characters (like iTunes and Spotify).
