    Windows displays squares in place of text

    Win 98SE and Word Offce 97 are guilty parties but behaviour is also exhibited in IE5.5.

    In place of text I often get little squares though the item prints correctly. Appeared to happen after reading someone elses' Word Document sent as an email attachment. Tried so far:

    - Ran up to date anti-virus software - nothing found
    - Delete and re-install all fonts.
    - Delete and recreate normal.dot template for Word
    - Checked no references to CodePage in autoexec.bat that might be forcing a difference codeset from the Windows setting - not an issue.
    - Updated video drivers and reduced screen colors per MS KB article!

    Still have the problem.

    Thought I had read about this in WOW at one point but can't find in that KB.

    Any ideas? TIA
