ACCENTED CHARS... HOW TO FIX THEM?

One day, a long time ago, I installed a program in a language not english, that program installed some DLL´s, OCX, etc., overighting those originals from windows...

My Windows default language is English, but I use Portuguese and Spanish occasionally.

I uninstalled the prog, but the unistaller is a joke and did not uninstall it correctly.  Result: menus under several programs appears with wrong ACCENTE LETTERS... Those letters appear now as RUSSIAN CHARS!!!!

The question is: which controls are responsible for drawing dialogs, menus, etc??? or if that is not the problem how to get rid of that %$&%/&$(% thing!!!!

HELP MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

Well first off see changing the font for Menu listed in the box labeled "item" from Control Panel > Display > Appearance has any affect on this.

Under Control Panel > Regional Settings > General what is listed in the box labeled "Your local..." If it is not the one you think it should be then change it to the one you want.

Also you could try going to Start > Run type in

sfc /scannnow

and this may get the original system files back in place.

I believe these are the files that may be involved. You might have to boot to your Win2000 CD and do a repair to get your system back to normal.

comctl32.dll
COMDLG32.DLL
commdlg.dll

COMCTL32.OCX
Comdlg32.ocx

A solution was not found to solve this issue. I had to install Windows 2000 in order to make it work again.
