Windows 7: Font displaying weirdly?

Font displaying weirdly?

I wasn't sure where to post this but, yesterday I installed the light version(s) of Helvetica fonts on my laptop and now (on Tumblr, usually) the fonts that are supposed to be displayed as Helvetica, I think? are coming out in weird characters. (pic below) I circled them. It does that for seemingly every page that I guess requires that font? Tumblr uses Helvetica and Arial as its fonts so I can only assume the problem lies there.

Is there any way to fix that? without having to restore or anything since I don't really have a restore point.

Have you tried deleting the font?

Yep, I've tried deleting the font and my font folder says that there are absolutely no Helvetica files either.

Assuming you have since visited the site after deleting the fonts, and the issue still occurs, try clearing your history and see if it still exists.
