    I tried with an other profile and got the same squares...
    Example: text from the buttons in preview mode of Paint appears as squares.
    There's a LOT of softwares installed on this machine (with an updated Antivirus).
    Is there a way to reinstall system fonts wihtout repairing XP?

    Accepted Solution

    try a system restore to the time when everything was ok......
    there is no way to just repair/reisntall system fonts in xp like earlier versions of windows....
