It is a corporate machine that gets scanned often and has limited access to the internet/wilderness.

I will try and see if a reboot fixes it, thanks!

No new fonts installed, but this happens in all applications, regardless of which font is being used.

For some reason there's something wrong with my SMART. That speccy app can't give me any SMART info and it can't determine the harddrive manufacturer either :/ Don't know what to make of this.

AFAIK Windows shuts down cleanly every time before this happens. I did a full chkdsk /f /r c: and it ran most of yesterday. Didn't report anything but I'll know when I reboot again in a day or three.

comment My ext4 partition became unreadable
I booted with the SLAX rescue disk and ran e2fsck on the partition. It reran the journal and fixed one or two things and now the problem is gone. Weird...

I tried using the ubuntu rescue remix. Kernel oopsed with the same stack trace. running e2fsck -v /dev/sda6 replied with 'device or resource busy'
