I have a Wide Char which lets say has 5 characters in it, but then its appended with all these junk characters.  So for exampe "stuff췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍췍"
I want to append a null terminator after the f so I can get rid of all these characters.  
How do I go about this?

52685 is also 0xCDCD, which is a marker for uninitialized memory.

So I am guessing that you allocated an array and then copied the string into it somehow:

wchar_t * pStr = new wchar_t[100];

pStr[0] = L's';
pStr[1] = L't';
pStr[2] = L'u';
pStr[3] = L'f';
pStr[4] = L'f';

To set the NULL, just set the next character to 0:

pStr[5] = 0;

Or you could initialize the whole array to zeros:

ZeroMemory(pStr, 100*sizeof(wchar_t));

We need to see your actual code to give more advice.
