Garbage characters are showing under My Network Places icon on desktop. There appears spotty garbage/garbles characters in Windows. I checked Regional and Language Settings in control panel, and it's set to English (United States).
It may be that the profile has been corrupted.

Any other ideas about how to fix it?
