    I am using Windows 95 and Explorer 5.0.

    I recently went to a web page alle-kiskitoday.com and saw English words on the left side of the web page. When I went to run a video from that sight, it said that I need a macroflash something or another, which I downloaded directly from that site.

    The video then played just fine, HOWEVER, the words on the left side of the web page are now all garbled, they look like greek letters.

    If I move my mouse over the garbled letters, in the links show up in English at the bottom of my screen in my Explorer window, however they still look greek on the web page.

    I have viewed this web page from work, and it is in English, so something must now be wrong on my end.

    Can someone guide me through the process of getting this garbled mess gone.

    Do any other sites display this garbled wording? I've just been to the site in question, and clicked on here:


    And then PIAA First Round Playoff: Kiski Area vs Erie Cathedral Prep:


    The file is a Windows Media file. Am I in the right place? can you post a screenshot of the problem you're seeing?
