Windows 7: Weird text glitch in volume mixer

Delete it again... I had to delete it a second time too, and then it worked for me... I don't have these squares since 5 months or so. So I deleted it two times, and it worked... don't know why tough... try to delete it again...

I know your frustration, before this solution I even re-installed win 7 to get rid of the squares, and guess what, right on the first boot the squares where there, on a fresh install. So re-installation did not solve it. I think that font cache get's corrupted or something by a bug in win 7.

Hello everybody,

In the Region and Language item from the Control Panel, change your format, location, and keyboard to a different setting in their respective tabs; then, switch them back to the correct settings, and restart your computer -- the squares should be gone for good. But, in case they still appear, open the Font item from the Control Panel, click on Font Settings, and click "Restore default font settings." Then, restart your computer once again.

Hello, I have tried everything that you have said, and still those annoying squares appear. Is there any other way to get rid of them?

When you change your format, location, and keyboard settings, you must click on the Apply button, revert the changes, and click on the Apply button once more. After that, try the "Restore default font settings" step too, and restart your computer.

Hello, I tried that again today, clicking all the "Apply" buttons and then restarting, exactly how you said. Found out that the squares were still there. BUT:
If I do not play any audio before opening the Volume Mixer, and then open the mixer soon after startup, the squares do not appear. Strange!
Any ideas to cure this long term?

What sound card is everyone using?

I have the square too!!It just recently appeared when I installed a Creative Sound Blaster x fi external sound card and the requisite drivers/software....I'm wondering if it might just be an issue w/ Creative or certain sound cards as opposed to a windows issue....although everything seems to be working just fine...

For your information, I am ussing the Realtek HD Audio that came with the laptop, and I have no intention of replacing it with anything else. Might this be a driver problem with realtek?

Oh...my fault, then I guess that pokes a hole in my theory...though it seems odd for me at least because my problem didn't occur until I connected my external sound card for the first time.

However, I always used to check my volume mixer from time to time, and found that the problems only started when IE9 was installed- could this be the cause?
thanks

In-Game volume mixer
I love to listen to music when I'm playing games. But I use Spotify, is there a program that works like the volume mixer and lets me only change Spotify's volume instead of constantly minimising the game? (One that over laps the game, like xfire) Thanks In Advance :D
