System tray in Russian or weird symbols?

Hi evereyone, my system tray now seems to display in what I think is Russian, strange characters.
Any help please.

check in control panel that your country settings have not changed.

could be a corruption within windows that may be fixed using sfc /scannow this may ask for the windows cd. If you do not have this use google to find using sfc without the cd.

Thanks for your reply. It only happens when using Firefox but now it is OK. It is a minor nuisance
rather than a problem but I am curious as to the cause.

I would suggest using howard64's suggestion, and run sfc /scannow
