A stupid font settings of Windows 7

Have you encounter the problem of starting up your Windows 7 and realised that all your Chinese or Korean or Japanese characters have turned into square boxes like the following, []? I have encounter it before and today I am going to share a possible fix for it.

Here are the steps:
  1. Click on the 'Start' button on the bottom left of the screen
  2. Click on 'Control Panel'
  3. Click on 'Appearance and Personalization'
  4. Click on 'Fonts'
  5. In the left pane, click on 'Font settings'
  6. Click on 'Control Panel'
  7. Make sure that the 'Hide fonts based on language settings' check box is not selected
  8. Restart your Laptop or PC and you are done.
