    Something has happened to your base fonts. You need to search to find the font called seguisym.ttf in your c:\windows\sxs folder and right click the file and select install, then restart.

    sorry c:\windows\WinSxS navigate to the folder and use the searchbox at the top right of the explorer window

    It needs to be the windows 8 version of the file - windows 7 does not contain all the symbols

    did you reboot after?

    Otherwise run sfc/ scannow from an admin command prompt
