When I got home today my address bar was showing squares instead text. If I type in a website it still works but the address is always squares. I checked the language settings and they are set to English. I also searched google without any luck. Does anyone know what could cause this and how to fix it?

Chrome Omnibar

Did you delete any fonts on your system by mistake? Which OS are you using? – Karan Apr 24 '13 at 1:37
Windows 7, the only change is that I updated IE to version 10 – Ripster Apr 24 '13 at 1:42
Confirmed that it is a font issue. I just noticed I was having problems with the search bar on my start menu doing the same thing and changed the system font from SegoeUI to another font and it fixed the problem. Now I just need to try reinstalling the font. – Ripster Apr 24 '13 at 2:03
@Ripster Why did you delete your answer? – iglvzx Apr 24 '13 at 2:07
Because I found more issues after I posted that. I just undeleted though because restaring cleared up the remaining problems. – Ripster Apr 24 '13 at 2:10

Re-installing SegoeUI (the default font for Win7) and then restarting the pc fixed it.
