    perhaps deleting that ugly font might help?

    any application is active in background which consumes that funny font. Shut that stuff down and go to windows setting and set another font as default. Then you should be able to delete that crap

    no there is no application that i am aware of that is using that font, basically it seems like windows itself is using the font, isn't there anyway in which i can change the font?
