Unknown glyph symbols on the Volume Mixer

In a number of random locations in windows 8 (one of which is the volume control) it seems to be rendering the end of line as a visible square character. Anyone got any idea what this might be. I've tried flipping the Language prefs back to en-Us but to no avail.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

I checked on my Win 8 Enterprise trial and I have the same thing. – Sep 8 '12 at 8:59
ok. some maybe a genuine bug. I've seen it in other places as well, (visual studio, office) in Win8 Pro (non trial). – Eoin Campbell Sep 8 '12 at 9:09

If you delete C:\Windows\System32\FNTCACHE.DAT and reboot, it will be fixed. I had this same problem and this worked for me.
