Can't Read Email

I use XP Home, and IE. Don't know what I clicked into -- I was going to my email and got a pop-up that said something like "clicking the link could cause problems -- continue?" I stupidly thought it meant clicking an ad (which I don't do) and I said OK to continue. I have no idea what I did but now all the text (except hyperlinks) looks like pipes -- something like this: == === ===
What's very interesting is that yesterday, on another machine, on a completely different email program, I received an email with the same kind of "encryption" (I'm not sure if that's what it is) and I couldn't read that email, although everything else on that email program is OK. Is this some kind of virus or just a problem that I should know about? I ran Ad-aware and AVG and I'm still having the problem. I have other email programs and none of the others seem to have gotten affected; in fact, on the email program that has the problem I have two or three other accounts under that main name and the other accounts don't seem to be affected either. Do you know what this is? Thanks.
