Outlook changing its font to Chinese characters

While working within Outlook 2003 with Windows XP, the font will automatically change to Chinese characters. It happens when composing a new message. Ive noticed that it first happens within the subject and then the body of the email. But when looking at the font, it read MS Mincho.
All language settings are correct (English) and I am not receiving messages in Chinese or from Chinese senders. The only way to get my fonts back to normal is to close and reopen Outlook.
Any ideas?

CarlyleIT,

Change the encoding to Western European. To set encoding through the user interface

   1. On the Tools menu, click Options, then click the Mail Format tab.
   2. In the Message format section, click International Options, then select Western European or Auto-Select encoding for outgoing messages.

This was already set as a default. Emails are in HTML also. This might have something to do with it. MS Word is set as the email editor, so I checked Word to see what language options were set to and everything was normal.

I noticed that under the languages tab in the Regions and Language options box, there was a check mark next to "Install Files for East Asian Languages"

I have unchecked this and will let in marinate to see if it has done the job.

Thanks for the help. Hopefully we wont be commenting on this one anymore.
