To fix this issue follow these steps:
1. Click Start -> Run. If you cannot locate the 'Run' item, then click 'Window Key' + 'R'.
2. In the run box, type: c:\windows\fonts (Replace c: with the drive letter where the OS is installed)
3. The fonts window will open. Click 'Alt' + 'F' to activate the menu. Click 'Install New Font' in the menu.
4. In the folders dialog, browse to c:\windows\fonts where c: is the OS drive letter.
5. All fonts would now appear under 'List all fonts'.
6. Click 'Select All' and then click 'Install'.
7. Confirm the windows permission dialog.
8. A replace file dialog would appear. Click on 'Yes' to each and every dialog that appears. This will ensure that fresh entries for fonts are written in the registry. To avoid clicking, press and hold 'Alt' key - then press 'Y' key for every dialog that appears.
Okay. That looks like the display language for iTunes has been set to an East Asian language ... but East Asian language support hasn't been enabled on your system. (That's possible with XP.)
Doublechecking before proceeding, Shlomo ... what language do you want your iTunes to be displaying? (English US, English UK, some other language?)
Open your iTunes.
In the second menu (counting from the left), select the bottom entry. (That should open your preferences.)
In the leftmost of the preference tabs, down the bottom-middle of the tab, there's a drop-down menu. Counting from the top, select the seventh item in the list. (That's English US.)
Now click the leftmost of the two buttons down in the bottom-right-hand corner of the tab. (That's the OK button.)
Quit and reopen your iTunes. Is it displaying in English now?
