    I'm not sure what its called, but I have a software program from my school that I installed on my HP computer with windows XP, and everytime I try to open it it comes up with those symbol things instead of letters.
    Can someone please tell me what I need to do to change the format on it to regular english letters???
    Thank you in advance

    usually you get those 'funny symbols' if its a language that your computer doesn't have software/program installed to translate those symbols into english-if at all possible.

    It is also possible that you are missing the font necessary for that particular program.
