Since this morning, all alt codes I type in (like alt 256, alt 26, alt 144, ...), are replaced by the "�" character. It also happens sometimes in Windows with accentuated characters (like é à ï ...). I.E when I tried to uninstall/install some programs, I could have such issues from one prompt window to another :
And funny enough: it's not 100% reproducible. If I try to get back the window from the screenshot, I might have it displaying correctly, or not. And some other displayed correctly before would display some � the next time. Kind of randomly.
No idea where this comes from. I'm not the owner of that computer, nor the only one using it (it's a school's computer). I have admin rights though. Any idea how to fix that?
