    hello. first I'm sorry if I'm in the wrong category.
    I want to ask about start screen, here the screenshot.

    the last thing I remember before it's happen is, I installed all the font that I copied from other computer using windows 7.
    Is that the cause of this trouble?
    please help! thanks a lot

    Hello lluukkman, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    If you like, you could do a system restore using a restore point dated before this happened to hopefully undo and fix this.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    hello Shawn! thanks for the answer.
    but I think I don't want to risk my system being restore, because I'm done many things after that happen (like install many driver, games, or other changes.) it's maybe a week ago. so is there any other solution?

    You could try running a sfc /scannow command to see if it may help if it's just a corrupted or modified system file at fault.
