    I've had the asian language pack installed on my laptop for awhile now and I know of a similar issue that involves the Korean won symbol, fortunately that never happened to me and I use my computer to type Korean frequently. I was attempting to get a program to run in Japanese to help out one of my friends, and after a restart; anywhere there's a file path it shows the ¥ instead of \.

    I know there's no difference aside from appearance, but it's really annoying to look at it.

    I've uninstalled the program and looked around the Regional and Language options, policy settings, and about anywhere I can think of, maybe I missed it somewhere, but I can't find a way to revert it. Can anyone help? Thanks.

    I don't have a Windows machine in front of me so I can't look through the control panel but I'm wondering if there is a language setting in the keyboard settings you can check out.
