Okay, so the power comes back on and my bf gets online, checks his email and all of a sudden (as he says) he can't read anything. As near as I can figure from the sparse english showing up, his language has been reset to elephant calibri... whatever that is!

How do I reset his language to English? Given that I can't read anything...

Is it everything on the computer, or just gmail (or whatever)?

It's everything! Even in safe mode. His restore points are gone and we couldn't reset to factory settings. I'm thinking it's a virus and I'll have to reformat. I wouldn't trust any of the files on there now anyway! :o

Thanks, shifty! It was windows 7. Actually, I found the computer's instructions and tried F2 (F8 didn't work.) I reset the computer to factory settings. He's pretty good about back-ups, so didn't lose anything but one program that's telling him he needs administrative permission. But, I thought I set him up as the adminstrator so now I have to figure out how to fix that....
