Try this (assuming you're using Firefox right?)

 

1) In the address bar type “about:config” (but without the inverted commas)
2) Tell it that you will be careful, Promise!!
3) In the filter type encoding
4) There should be one option reading “network.http.accept-encoding”
5) Click in the value column and type “true” (again without the inverted commas)

 

Better now?

Have you tried clearing your cache?

 

Does this occur on all browsers?

 

Have you tried system restore to before this happened?

 

Have you installed any new software or browser plug ins?

OK, let's try system restore for a fuss free fix.

 

Follow option 1 on this tutorial and select a date from your restore points that is before this problem started.

 

Better now?

Yes it is very easy to do... and reversible also.

 

Here's Windows 10 instructions

  1. Right-click (or press and hold) the Start button, and then select Control Panel.

  2. Search Control Panel for Recovery. (type in the box)

  3. Select Recovery > Open System Restore > Next.

  4. Choose the restore point before the problem, and then select Next > Finish.

For information.

 

A duplicate of this topic had been posted in the Win 10 section. Hamluis moved it to this section as more appropriate. Since there were no replies to it I have deleted it to avoid any possible confusion.
