Ran system file scanner from ERD6, now XP shows Arab Characters

  1. I ran a tool on the erd6 disc called system file scanner (the ms incarnation of erd commander for vista aka MS DaRT). I believe it's just the sfc tool but with a gui but I'm not certain. It replaced four files in the windows' system directory. I have the trojan removed but now certain programs show arab text instead of english. You can see in the picture I attached.

    I checked the regional options but everything looks good there. I believe the repair tool replaced the files with an incorrect copy or backup.

    I'm thinking about just doing a system restore.

    Ok, I did the XP in-place reinstall. That fixed it the problem.
