    Use Winaero Tweaker to change the system fonts and see if this works. I think the default is Segoe UI or similar. Try Arial.

    I am not familiar with the font used for system icons, I know one is marlett.ttf. Can anybody enlighten us on what font the check mark in the open with dialog is? It's definitely a font because I deleted all of the fonts on a virtual machine and the check box no longer appeared.

    You could press Win+X and select to open a Command Prompt as Administrator. Then execute sfc /scannow This will fix any errors in system files and may solve your problem. Another thought is you may use a non-supported locale. Search for Language and click to open the Language control. Then on the left click Change date, time and number formats. Click the Administrative tab and then click Change system locale. Set that to your own language and see if the font problems fix.
    I ran an sfc /scannow but it found no problems. The system locale is already set to my own country (United KIngdom)

    I see two font options in this program, I changed both options from Segoe UI to Verdana. I know this worked because the fonts within Mozilla Firefox now look different. Changing the font didn't help though What font is the tick boxes and bulletpoints using? There is a restore system fonts option in control panel but it's useless, it doesn't appear to do anything.

    There are several font options in Winaero Tweaker. Try changing them all, and you should find the right one. Maybe the one you are looking for is the message window font.

    I tried changing the font to verdana for:

    - Menus
    - Window Title Bars
    - Icons
    - Message Font
    - Statusbar Font

    I then rebooted but it did not help. I know the fonts have changed, I can see that system fonts are set to Verdana.

    You can try repair your system files with sfc /scannow. If you still have the first build (10240) try upgrading to the new build 10586. It will replace all system files including fonts and could fix it.

    As I already said on page 1 of this thread, I've tried sfc /scannow but it didn't find any problems. I am running build 10240. Why isn't 10586 part of Windows update? How do I install the 10586 update? I downloaded the TechBench file but I don't understand it. Will I have problem with applications not working/being uninstalled and losing personal files?

    Running the setup from the ISO you downloaded will upgrade build 10240 to 10586. You won't lose any applications or data, it is an in-place upgrade (like upgrading from 7 or 8 to 10). The only annoying issue is that all your drivers are replaced with generic drivers from Windows Update, so you have to reinstall them (starting with chipset) to get full functionality of your hardware again. Any customization (colors, fonts etc) is canceled and you have to do it again. That's all.

    I'll upgrade my Windows build sometime this week when I get the time. Will this eventually be added as part of Windows update?

    Where is the best place to get my chipset drivers from? I have an Asrock Z68 Extreme4. The Asrock page shows drivers dating from 2012/2013

    Yes, eventually there will be an update for this in Windows Update, but you can do it earlier using the ISO. You have an Intel chipset, so you can download it directly from Intel's site. The driver is intended for Intel motherboards, but it will work in all motherboards with the same Intel chipsets.
