Windows 7: Some font icons are Chinese

17 Jul 2016   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit
Some font icons are Chinese

Hi, I've noticed that some of my font icons are displaying as Chinese characters (see attachment). I find this extremely annoying. Is it normal or can I fix it?

Perfectly normal, allows windows to display correctly wherever you are

It also looks like you may have show all files set, based on the lighter nature of the system fonts, which will often show system files that are not normally visible

You can delete these files but they are likely to be repaired by windows and reinstalled, or cause the system to malfunction
