    I had a similar issue except my entire windows 8 desktop, control panel, and website urls changed to symbols. I used the attachment you posted and it fixed my problem but only temporarily. I restarted my computer after downloading the attachment and my text switched back to symbols again. Any suggestions?

    Fixed the text on Windows 8

    Thank you so much! This solved the issue on my PC when I tried to make a new User Account. Just by installing the font, the text reverted back. Just make sure you hit the right button when you install the font haha.
