I booted my computer and now this is what I'm looking at.

It's like my system font was set to Marlett.

Furthermore, certain apps are unaffected, such as Chrome, Settings, (most of) TeamViewer, etc.

What did I do, and more importantly, how do I fix it?

Edit: With some help from @MC10, I was able to determine that installing a TTC font file is what borked my install. That being said, I also can't perform a system restore because during the upgrade process from 8.1, System Protection was disabled on all of my drives.

  • There was a user with a similar problem. Did you install any fonts or change language settings recently? – MC10 Aug 16 '15 at 21:07
  • I did install a font, come to think of it. Let me see if I can hunt it down and remove it. – Cora Aug 16 '15 at 21:07
  • @mc10 My Fonts window shows three fonts, none of which I can tell what they are. I'm afraid to remove any of them in case it gets worse. – Cora Aug 16 '15 at 21:09

    I found the question here: superuser.com/questions/949956/… He installed a ttc font which is usually for Mac but not necessarily. The way he solved it was rolling back to Windows 8.1. I'm not sure if it's possible to repair it. Do you have any system restore points? – MC10 Aug 16 '15 at 21:10

HI Dude You can resolve this problem by installing any new common fonts in to the font library.If you check your library you can see only 3 set of fonts... that's the problem.As per my case i saw this problem when i reboot my laptop after installing some fonts(material fonts and one ttc font also i think... let me confirm that and i will update it
