Symbols instead of text in Windows XP

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys. So, I have this XP Laptop, and for some reason most of my text has been converted to symbols. I'm not sure what font this is, but help for getting the text back to English would be *greatly* appreciated. Thank you very much.

I wanted to attach a picture, but the server says I need a URL. Since I'm writing this on my Blackberry, I won't upload a picture unless you need one.

Ugh. My sister says she doesn't want to help anymore. It's my gradmother's laptop, and seeing as I'm not over there right now, she doesn't want to do this anymore. Thank you for you help.
