Looks like you're using a different font, you have to right click on desktop to go in and change it

Is the problem that you can't tell which folder is the Fonts folder?
If so its the 12th one along with the picture of a yellow folder with a green capital A in it.

Can you not use System Restore to get back to a date before the font became screwed up? That would be my first choice.
