    Windows 8.1 displaying weird font and prevents logging in.


    Hello everyone, and thank you for stopping by. I am having a pretty big issue with windows 8.1 right now. I think I might have clicked something I shouldn't have and it started downloading something before I had time to do anything about it, which proceeded to go into some setup. I closed it all up and did a malware bytes scan, which detected one threat, which had the name of whatever that was... then decided to restart.

    That was a bad move, as now, the fonts are all messed up, and my password doesn't log me into windows for some reason. It displays a message i can't read and then kind of resets. So, I can't get into safe mode or anything. I thought inserting the windows 8.1 CD would prompt something, but nope. So i'm pretty much stuck and all out of options.

    Please help me out. I don't know what to do. Thank you very much.

    Not sure if I'm allowed to do this, but I really need this problem solved, so i'm bumping it up. Sorry if I wasn't supposed to do this.
