You try just changing the color scheme in "appearances"?

Use this entered into the RUN command to bring up the appearance tab.
Code:
rundll32.exe shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL desk.cpl,,2

You changed the default Windows font setting. That sucks, not sure how to set that back, try playing around in the System Manager, if not just format.

That's not Wingdings, that's Marlett.ttf - the font used to display windows elements like the min, max and close buttons. This one should never be choosable in any font list.
Can you go to Display Properties - Appearance - Advanced and try to change the menu font to something else.

Did you do any changes related to fonts or more generally asked what did you do before the problem appeared?

Yah reformatting is the best way to fix that. I never seen anything like that before. It is strange to say the least.

Can't you just restore the fonts from your Windows cd?

Insert the cd into the drive, open a command window and
(assuming E: is your cd drive and Windows is installed in C:\Windows - otherwise adjust)
type :
expand E:\i386\*.tt_ C:\Windows\Fonts /r
press Enter
type:
expand E:\i386\*.fo_ C:\Windows\Fonts /r
press Enter

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
