I FIGURED IT OUT!!  I copied over the fonts from one of our terminal servers and installed them (wasn't easy) on top of the old ones.  Worked like a champ!

If you login locally on the server, same thing?
Either the local or the main font was changed.

It is not clear which setting was modified.

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Or use GPO with loopback to apply to the users logins.

Can you access the registry of this server remotely?
If not run services.msc on any other system and then connect to this one to start the remote registry service.
Once you can remotely connect to the registry of this server, you would need to change its defined locale.

i have created a policy and can manage the server remotely but this has not helped.  I can actually read the english language if i go to start->run and type something it types english everything else is that damn symbol crap.

It sounds as the locale or the default font was changed.

can you login into the server on the console?  You could try the comparative.
start and using the images, navigate to the control panel, launch the regional lanugauges and settings and change the locale to your with the language as english.
apply the change and see if that helps?
