A few weeks ago, I noted that on a number of websites that my fonts had changed slightly in appearance (I didn't see it in any applications, though). Also a few weeks ago, my APC powerchute software seemed to be no longer communicating with my UPS properly and I would get a "Powerchute Not Functioning Properly" box when I tried to launch it.
Anyway, my UPS battery gave up the ghost and I bought a new APC UPS and restalled powerchute - and got the same error message with everything I tried. Working with APC tech support, we discovered that the Arial fonts I needed were not installed (those fonts were arial.ttf and arialbd.ttf. The arial fonts I had installed were named arial_01.ttf and arialbd_01.ttf. When we replaced those, the Powerchute started working normally.
I don't recall changing the arial fonts at all. It just happened. It looks to me that the issue of website appearance and the powerchute problem are related.
I ran Malwarebytes and I had a number of mysearchdial pups, but nothing else.
Anyone have an idea how this could have happened? Malware?
