Windows 7: Win7 documents preview pane; Distorted words letters

Win7 documents preview pane; Distorted words letters

Hi guys. Could not get documents preview to work, so I tried the favored solution/fix of PreviewConfig but then at least something "worked" although with weird words & letters. See attached shot in the right pane please.

You got any idea why the preview panel shows just this word-letter jibberish? Any way to fix the view of this preview?

For my documents I am running Oo (Open Office) that uses .odt. The words letters open just fine when the entire .odt file is opened, so I am kinda at a loss as to what gives.

Tanks for the help in advance. Jim
