    Weird chinese characters appearing in windows


    I've googled it and it seems like some others have had similar issues, but i'd like to ask if anyone knows what this is all about.

    Weird chinese characters appearing in windows [​IMG]


    If i copy paste the line seen on screenshot, then this is what i get:

    Code: 蓤疖෫媁ᠢ钶븆옃ᢔꡰ缎⚯㦸䢐賴痖口帬ࠣశ꺮蘃긟嘿㥦ế嵾ᗽ烨޵system32\svchost.exe[/quote] I'm 100% sure it's not malware or any other type of malicious software, so please don't start saying that my pc has a virus.
    What i'd like to know, is where it's coming from and why is windows 10 doing this?

    In past, in win 7, i've seen similar chinese characters somewhere in documents and settings folders within some files, i was cleaning my files, going through all the folders in docs and settings and i saw some files having similar names.

    It's a fresh install of windows 10, I haven't downloaded anything, but simple things, such as google chrome, ccleaner, winamp, skype ..etc, everything from trusted sources only, so clearly it's not a virus or malware, whatever it is, it's within windows 10.
    I don't think it's dangerous, but i'm just trying to figure out why my PC is going chinese on me.

    :)

    Check your Fonts maybe there is something wrong there.

    Nope, nothing's wrong with fonts. I have always used US english and nothing else. windows + all programs are always US english, i don't use any other languages or fonts.

    I think it's google chrome doing it, i googled around and saw some others mentioning some files appearing in their PC with chinese characters and in their case, they said that google chrome had some weird default settings that caused it, but i'm not sure. i can't find anything that might be causing it.

    on windows 7, i had some chinese files in:
    C:\Users\
    you see files like
    NTUSER.DAT{77a227ed-34f0-22e3-80da-c41d2d341140}.TM.blf

    and such, in windows 7 i saw some chinese files appearing there. on win 10 i don't see files, but that svchost.exe popped up with chinese name. i blocked internet access and everything works fine, so no idea what the heck it was.

    I'd like to get to the bottom of this and find out what is causing these chinese characters popping up randomly.
