    I think i'm turning Japanese

    Actually strange things are happening. Task manager read, under user name, all Japanese Kanji characters. It would not let me take a screenshot or start any apps for a few minutes.

    My PC is still multilingual! Funny thing is I run online scans, trojan, adaware, etc and find nothing - then the problem goes away - also, netmeeting started on it's own.

    It happens sometimes when you install east asian language support. Noting to worry about.



    Try removing the multilingual support and it should go back to normal.

    What do you mean netmeeting starts on its own?

    I could not start any apps not even paint to take a screenshot - there would be an error message. I noticed that netmetting was running in the sys tray. I did not start it./

    maybe some software package you installed or some website you visited installed something that is doing this to your system.
