Windows 7: Win7 not displaying unicode anymore

19 Jun 2012   #1

Windows 7 64bit
Win7 not displaying unicode anymore

Hello, everyone.

I have a Windows 7 64bit with system locale set to Japanese.
I used to have unicode detection / typing / display all available and etc. until one day, they showed up as squares instead.

I have tried switching locale to Korean and back to Japanese, and the problem was solved until the next day.

I haven't had this issue until I installed Google Chrome and uninstalled FireFox, but I doubt that's the problem?

Please help me, this is starting to get frustrating.
Thank you very much!


It shows languages while in Chrome and in filenames, but in programs that used to show them, it displays as the boxes...
