So here's the deal.
The other day I was backing up some files like I usually do. But I had recently downloaded many fonts (graphic design major, another story). And I wanted to back them up. So I made a folder on my external HD, and then proceeded to drag the files into that folder. Immediately the window froze up and then at the top of the window instead of saying "Fonts", it had some weird characters. Should have taken a screenshot, but didn't. Anyways, all the windows I opened after that were glitchy and had some weird "korean looking" characters instead of what it should say (i.e. My Documents, My Music, etc.)
I restarted (several reboots now [the problem happened like 2 days ago]) and now all windows fonts are bolded. The windows clock in the bottom right was bold as well as the start button (it reverted to classic mode for some reason).
I then went into regular Windows XP and that fixed the start button, clock, and desktop icons. But the fonts are still bolded on many webpages and forums, as well as, in aim chat and other programs.
I really need to fix this problem because it is not only annoying, but it is hard to work with these bolded fonts.
All the best,
