Wordpad & Paint trying to use a forign language

When I click on print preview in Wordpad & Paint the buttons in the
preview window have blocks on them where there should be text such as
"print" "close" etc. If I do a print preview in other programs the
buttons are fine. It's like it's trying to use a foreign language &
can't display the characters. If I close Wordpad without saving my
document the window asking me to save it has the same problem.

I have a dual boot system & my second system doesn't have this
problem. I tried coping wordpad.exe to my primary system & it didn't
fix it. I was going to uninstall & re-install in add/remove programs
but wordpad isn't there.
How do I fix this?

TIA,
Frank

Hi Frank,

This happens if the file MFC42LOC.DLL is present in the System32 folder. To
resolve the problem, rename the file MFC42LOC.DLL present in the
C:\Windows\System32 folder (for Windows 2000/XP systems) and
C:\Windows\System (for Windows 9x systems)

The above applies to the following products:

Microsoft Paint
Microsoft WordPad
Microsoft Image Composer
Microsoft MapPoint 2000
Adobe PhotoDeluxe
Corel Photo-Paint

Ramesh,
Thank you for this information. I have been trying for over a
month to resolve this issue, changing the name of the MFC42LOC.DLL took care
of it. To be more specific I think the print preview toolbar menu had
changed to Japanese characters. It also happened in some other applications.
Your resolution took care of it.
