Weird Problem with Language Settings

Hello,

I am having a problem on a computer that has other languages installed one of them being Korean. In the address bar the backslash is represented as a "W" with a line through it. Because of this a certain program is not running. I have disabled all the other languages through the "Region and Language Settings" but it still shows backslashes with the "W".

Anybody know how to get rid of that behavior?

Thanks,
mentallo

There is only english in there.

Also, the W I was talking about is much larger than a normal capital letter and it has that bar through it.

It's a store point of sale program. I had it installed on one comp. that had the Korean language installed and had the W with the slash. I did a system restore to before the korean was installed and then it worked again (Normal backslash). On the other comp with korean installed I uninstalled all languages but the W slash is still there (I can't do system restore on that machine).

Do you have an XP disk to run a repair on that Korean machine in English or Korean?
