    Help!!! Squares while in search!


    Hi everyone!
    When I'm doing a search in Hebrew to find files on my windows 8, the results are being replaced by squares. I cannot read it! Please help!

    Check your unicode settings under language in control panel. They need to be hebrew.

    Look in Language and Region, see what is listed for non-unicode language, Windows assumes the OS language and right to left show squares, may have to change before searching...
