I type and the charactors that appear are wrong, i.e., I type 'abcd' or 'test' and I see '2345' or 'E6DE'

THIS HAPPENS IN MY APPLICATIONS, EDITPAD PRO, YAHOO MESSAGE WINDOW, QUICKBOOKS, WORDPERFECT 10,

AND DOES NOT HAPPEN IN WORDPAD, NOTEPAD OR THIS QUESTION BODY

my default font is ARIAL in applications. and if I change the font choice, I get different results. Seems like the font pointer(s) are out of wack. I tried uninstalling fonts and installing them back, rebooting each time, etc. I cannot use my main applications until this is resolved.

suggestion?

Reggie
