    Hi Everyone,

    I had this problem before but i fixed it way back when and now its happening again but this time i have no clue what to do...

    When i open certain programs, or when i'm installing programs the box the normally says ok, or cancel is blank...The box is there and you can click it but the words aren't there

    Its also happening with some other programs when the box is there and i can still click it, but i cant' see the OK or Cancel

    Its even affecting msn, where i can't see certain peoples' font

    I'm not sure what to do so i decided to ask for help, since i got no clue where to start!

    Thanks,
    Brown Panther

    Click on start, run, type in cmd, click ok, then type sfc /scannow in the command window, hit enter, and have your xp disc handy.

    Right click my computer, choose manage, expand event viewer, you'll find the results of sfc in application. Does the problem remain?
