I had a screenshot, but i lost it...
anyways, i was trying to open Windows MEdia Player, and after about 5 or 6 tries i gave up and decided to terminate the process. When i hit ctrl-alt-delete Windows refused to initiallize Task MAnager, citing lack of memory or something. I know that's not right, i have 1 GB of memory and i'm barely even using any when not gaming. Eventually, it did let me open Task MAnager, when i right-clicked on the system tray and selected it.
However, I noticed that all the user names had changed from saying "JOHN", "SYSTEM",
or "LOCAL SERVICE" to saying random chinese or korean characters. I have a Chinese language pack installed, but i was using English 32-bit windows...can anyone help? A reboot solved the problem, i'm just curious as to why it happened.
