  1. Hi :)

    Japanese CD or a virus ?

    All the best Brett :)
  2. Is it actually Japanese or just garbled characters? Because unless you've installed the Japanese language pack, Windows probably doesn't even have the fonts to do what you're saying.

    All the writing on the CD cover is in English so i assume its an English cd. If it were a virus I would think it would do this to all cds not just the odd one.

    Maybe it is just garbled characters. Regardless, its not English and only the odd cd does it.

    Thanks. This seem to work. 3 out of 5 new cds had these odd Japanese-like characters and now only one still has them. I'm still scratching my head over that one.
