Looks like there is some corruption.

First thing I would do is check and fix the hard drive by typing chkdsk /f in the Run box and hitting Enter key. Say "yes" to doing this check on restart. Note there is one space after chkdsk.

Next, if necessary, type this in the Run box (to restore original system files) and hit Enter key:
sfc /scannow
Note that there is one space (after sfc). Wait until it is finished and see if it helps.

Otherwise, if you have an XP CD you could do a Repair Install:

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Maybe I am not understanding, you stated "fonts have changed and i cant read anything on my other comp".
Is this some type of document created on 1 computer and you are trying to open it on another computer???
