Windows 7 - Squares instead of text for languages such as Japanese?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Just as the title indicates, my computer displays squares instead of text for some languages. Logging off then logging back on fixes this, but it's only temporary -- shut down the computer and the problem re-appears.

Anyone know of a permanent fix?

Install the Japanese language pack, change your locale for non-unicode applications to Japanese (assuming you're on Windows 7 Ultimate).

Using W7 Pro, so no access to that frown.gif

It's just a bit odd that it displays the text correctly when you log out >> log back in..
