Why Do My Japanese (or Korean) Characters Show Up as Squares?

SOLUTION: Go to "Control Panels"->"Fonts"->"Font Settings" ---> Uncheck the "Hide fonts based on language settings"  (Then Reboot)

My Korean Characters STILL Show Up as Squares: Delete C:\Windows\System32\FNTCACHE.dat and reboot



That's it!
