Hi,

a servician from third company had made some changes on our Server2012R2. Since then all numbers are presented like in picture below. All fonts in Windows/Fonts show similar "hierogliphs". How can I change it to normal state, best will be without system restart?

Time settings Win2012R2
Thanks,

Greg

Also check the format tab, it must be English (United States). and set your current location to United States.

Ok, I let know when it helps - I can't do any changes myself - that server is production-crucial.

Many Thanks Ramin! I was not 100% convinced that reset does it so great, while the fonts were Latin all the time. But it does. "Best solution" award goes to You!

P.S. This Reset function which Ramin had given didn't caused restart of Server / VM also its production irrelevant.
