No, the problem isn't anything to do with Character Map as I never removed it. So I'm guessing it must be your first suggestion of me removing my language packs. Do you know which actual language pack is needed so I can see the special characters? Thanks
I've just ran a clean installation of vista using vLite and only removing drivers, languages and programs like mediacenter etc... Can anybody tell me why my volume mixer has those little squares in the corner? Was it something I did wrong? http://i34.tinypic.com/2ywtmoi.jpg Regards!
