Windows 7: Character coding problem on W7 Pro x64

Character coding problem on W7 Pro x64

First of all, I'm a Romanian and that's part of the reason I opened this thread. I used to run x86 on my notebook and after I've downloaded a movie, the sub was perfect with the correct characters (ă, ș, ț), aka Unicode. After I chenged to x64, the characters went crazy. I mean, for the SAME movie, instead of Unicode, Notepad changes them without any notification to ASCII. What's wrong?

Please follow this tutorial and change language for non-unicode programs to Romanian. In that language window you could also try changing other parameters to Romanian.

If this won't work, VLC media player can force enconding for subtitles while playing a movie. In VLC - Tool - Preferences - Subtitles&OSD - Default encoding. For Romanian you most likely would have to choose Eastern European (Latin 2).

Intros and coding
I'm new to the forums, hi! I have been coding for a while, and I end up writing apps for myself. So I figure what better place to tell people than the seven forums. This time I was learning the Windows 7 API, jump lists specifically. What was born was Linx, which you pin to your task bar,...

Slow deletes (character by character)
This probably has nothing to do with Windows 7, but I thought someone on this forum would know. When in a text editor like on this forum or on Microsoft word and when I delete and hold it down it will be really slow. Characters would only delete every half a second no matter what. Anyone...
