So, this is the weirdest thing ever:

I used Smarty Unistaller Pro to clean up a bit, removed things it identified as corrupt/incomplete uninstalltions, removed Adobe Illustrator which it had listed as being secret. Nothing major, nothing I would image would lead to this...

This being that every single symbol I know has been replaced by symbols. I don't know if what language this is (or is meant to represent), because I don't understand it. How do I get my alphabet (etc) back?

I managed to find Control Panel / Regional and Language Options, but changing things into my language and/or English did not solve the problem. I'm stumped...

I haven't uninstalled any fonts or anything else that I can think of as relevant...

UPDATE: Played around in regional settings and fonts directory. For some reason the problem seems to have resolved itself. Weird...
