    Hi guys,

    I've had this issue for a while now. Nearly all of my non-english fonts have been displaying as squares, especially Korean. I looked around the internet, and all the suggestions pointed to removing the FNTCACHE file in system32. This works, but only temporarily. After a day or so, the squares will come back. In case it's of any use, I was using Windows 7 Enterprise.

    I've built a new computer now, completely separate from my old system. I'm now using Windows 7 Pro, and I installed the additional languages through Vistalizator. It was working fine until I rebooted, then all the squares appeared. I've tried removing FNTCACHE, but as I mentioned before, it's only temporary.

    Anyone know a permanent solution for this?

    Control panal -> region & language -> tab "Administrative" -> "Change system locale" select "Korean" and reboot.

    Thanks. However, I still want my system's default language to be English. I don't actually want to change it to Korean.
