    Text that disappears from menus


    Hey, I have a strange problem with text that disappears in all kinds of software I use. Sometimes it disappears completely and sometimes becomes strange symbols as in the picture attached.
    *
    I have Windows 10 on a stationary computer.
    I scanned for viruses and everything look fine.
    I even did a Fresh Start action that erased all the software from the system and updated the windows to the latest version, did not help.
    *
    Does anyone know what it is?

    Windows10: all menu text disappeared! Help!

    Hello,

    Something is wrong with my Windows 10. A few days ago, all menu text disappeared! Initially, reboot the system would resolve the issue. But now reboot the system doesn't help at all. I tried to reset the system yesterday, it doesn't work either.

    For example, if you click on the network button on the right bottom corner, a list of available wifi networks will be displayed. But what I get is only a list of the wireless icons, all the network names are disappeared.

    However, if I login as a different user (Administrator), the menu text are back.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    Feature suggestion: Add right-click menu

    Suggestion: Please add a Windows 7 Jump-List and/or right-click menu to the GPU-Z icon in the Windows taskbar. Possible menus in it would be "Exit" and "About GPU-Z...".
    Maybe also "Switch to tab 1/Switch to tab 2/Switch to videocard 1/Switch to videocard 2" too.
    Examples of programs that have such menus are ICQ, Skype, AIM.

    NOTE: It seems for a right-click menu, Windows 7 is not needed - it works on WinXP and Vista too.
    But even a Windows 7 Jump-list may be good enough.
    What do you think?

    Text that disappears from menus

    Text randomly disappears in most programs


    After installing creators update, the text in most programs would disappear randomly, making them impossible to use.

    Symptoms before this happens:

    • Computer usually hangs (sometimes even mouse cursor freezes) for at least a few minutes
    • If I happen to have task manager resource monitor up at the time of the freeze, read/write would be 0kbps, yet disk usage is 100%
    • Usually I'd have some kind of CPU/GPU intensive program open like a game, but it's always minimized. In other words my computer never hangs while actually playing the game

    Programs with missing text or glitched text:

    • Desktop. Some letters get replaced with weird symbols, and hovering over icons with mouse would turn text a blurry black colour (see screenshot below)

    • MS Paint
    • Explorer (hovering over icons would cause text to disappear)

    • CMD (completely blank black screen)
    • Any windows prompts or confirmation popups
    • Games
    • MS Office apps like Word
    • Text that disappears from menus Qc8O7BF.png

    Programs that don't get affected:

    • Internet browser (even foreign characters display fine)
    • Windows context menus, like when you right click
    • Task bar and start menu

    I'm assuming something crashed, like fonts? But it's very weird why some programs or features don't get affected.

    I Googled this and only found two "solutions", run SFC scannow, or uninstall "Comodo firewall". I've already ran SFC with no errors, and I don't have Comodo installed. Graphics drivers are all up to date (Intel HD + Nvidia Optimus). Also my issue is different as some programs aren't affected.

    Simply restarting computer will fix this, but I'd like to find out what's causing it, as it's happening almost every day.
