Uhm, the Chinese and Japanese characters are supposed to look like my first example eh. That's what the language pack changes them to..

Anyway, glad I was of assistance!

After a windows update, the chinese, japanese characters went back to squares again.
But apparently I still have the language packs installed (look at the screenshot below)
What am I suppose to do now D:

I assume that you have tried switching to them, and then restarting to see if anything changed?
If not, please do so.

Good luck and keep us posted,
