Square symbol on volume-mixer

Hello,
It's always done this i looked around and saw that maybe another program could be conflicting with it, and something about the font maybe being corrupt. Could be it, or maybe it's an easy fix?

In google chrome it seems japanese symbols or any type of foreign language shows up as ☐☐☐☐'s in the tab titles.

What made me notice / look for it:http://i.imgur.com/G6wTc.png

Solutions? I can fill in system specs too if needed. Also note that this comp is completely up to date.

  1. What is your region and language?

    Did u play with the fonts?

    Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Fonts\Font settings = restore to the default
  2. If it is not interfering with anything then ignore it.
  3. Did u do anything with custom DPI size?

  7. Hello everybody,

    In the Region and Language item from the Control Panel, change your format, location, and keyboard to a different setting in their respective tabs; then, switch them back to the correct settings, and restart your computer -- the squares should be gone for good. But, in case they still appear, open the Font item from the Control Panel, click on Font Settings, and click "Restore default font settings."

    I believe that I seem to have done everything that you have suggested, as this was also suggested in a different forum, however these squares are still there and I do not know what to do...
    It might be a realtek bug, since I use Realtek HD Audio (and so does the person who originally posted here) and the squares are there, however I know of people who don't use Realtek and they don't have them.....

    But anyway, are there any more suggestions that I could try? I have no windows disks (so I presume the recovery stuff's on a partition) and dont know how to use partitions, so re-install windows isn't an option... any ideas?
  9. Yipee, I have now found a way around this. If you have Internet Explorer 9 installed, uninstall it. I remember that before I installed IE9, the volume mixer was fine, then once IE9 was on the squares appeared. Now I have uninstalled it and there are now no squares to bother me on the volume mixer. :)
