    Font Problem in IE (IE 6)

    Hi, all.

    Two days ago, I had some painful problems with my Windows XP Evo 620c laptop. Essentially, the ATI drivers became corrupted. Along the way to resolving the problem, I uninstalled several ostensibly unnecessary apps and utilities. (No Microsoft apps, but more like utilities I've downloaded along the way.) Well, my video is working fine now, but I noticed that I have a font issue in Explorer that I've never seen before. Paragraphs that have proper bullets at the beginning aren't showing the bullet character; instead, I get the "lamda" character. (You know, the sort-of upside-down "y" character.) I don't know if this is a font issue or a setting that I blew away, but I notice it on web pages where it's using the Tahoma font, which is certainly present on my system.

    Any ideas? (Thanks in advance.)

    See Description of Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 System File Checker (Sfc.exe). If that does not work you could try a system restore or a repair install.
