Wrong symbols for checkbox, radio button, etc. in Windows 7 Professional x64 SP1? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Although system windows and dialogs display these symbols correctly, many installation packages display incorrect images for common elements such as checkboxes and radio buttons.  The checkbox images are often so complex that it is difficult to tell whether or not they are selected.  The radio buttons look sketchy (i.e. the circle for each option is broken rather than continuous, and the selection dot looks ragged instead of round) and the selection dot is not centered / contained in the circle.  Forum, Google and KB searches for such symptoms haven't turned up anything relevant.  At first I thought it might be a problem with my Intel GPU or its driver, but the symptoms also show in RDP sessions, which are presumably independent of the host's graphics system.   Has anyone else seen anything like this?  What could be causing it, and how can it be corrected?

  • The problem was corrected by running sfc /scannow, which found and repaired a number of font (.ttf) files.

  • Here is a screenshot from the JRE installer, whose checkbox is so mangled it's hard to tell whether it is checked or not:

    Here is another one from Media Portal (see checkboxes under "Scheduler" in the right-hand pane):

    Thanks for your help.



    P.S. The issue is independent of the account used.
