A strange one------Wingdings

A freind at work who has XP home on his computer asked me if I had ever heard of a virus or a trojan that when downloading of the internet comes out as wingdings.
Apparently anything he downloads to the desktop comes up in the wingding font and even if he changes the font next time he reboots. anything he downloads comes back in wingdings.
Hasa anyone heard of this or can offer a solution.

would suggest d/loading adaware/spybot/spywareblaster from the d/loads section of this site update av protection and run all with system restore disabled should clear it all out or do a system restore to a known good working date.

Do you know of a virus that can produce these results?

Your advice is sound as it would be for any suspected virus but can you tell us if you have any personal experience of this particular and peculiar phenomenon?
