    I'm having a problem with how certain programs show on my computer (emachine T2542, 2.5 GHz intel, 256MB DDR, windows XP). I recently went through a problem with it being slow, but realised it was a problem of too much stuff running. So I cleaned it up, downloaded and ran CCleaner, and then the newest updates for xp from last week. The problem is that now certain programs are displaying without any text. Two examples are: When I start Yahoo Messenger the box telling me that it's logging on shows and the cancel button is there, but there is no text.
    I just tried to run AntiVir. As it did the system test, the box showed up and the dots and then check marks showed, but no text. Then as it was running, the little animation of the disk was there, and the "stop" button was there, but again no text. As it ran it came to a program (pretty sure it was the "Coke Gift" that I know is there and always ignore) and the warning screen popped up with the big red ? and I could see the buttons but as usual no text.
    I'm pretty sure that I must have accedentally deleated something important, and was wondering if anyone could tell me what it was and how to get it back.
    I appreciate any help.
