Menu's are gibberish (java programs)


hi wondering if someone can help me?

problem was noticed a few weeks back but i ignored it...
yesterday after installing another java program,
I noticed the menus had the same garbled gibberish so the issue is obviously my end

I have uninstalled java / reinstalled java / Ccleaner / reset default font settings
and googled a few hours

running windows 7 64bit updated - and MalwareBytes finds no issues

looking forward to you replies
