Dec 18, 2019  When running certain apps on Windows 10 desktop or Windows 10 Mobile, some characters display as a square or rectangular box, or as a box with a dot, question mark or “x” inside, while the same app running on earlier Windows or Windows Phone versions did not have this problem. For example, it happens on Google, while it does not happen on Facebook, but it happens when Facebook displays another website on its page. This first happened yesterday on my desktop iMac. My laptop (Macbook Pro), however, has been fine all day.until about 30 minutes ago, when it too began displaying all text as question marks inside boxes.

Desktop Icons appear with Question marks
I tried the suggestions you posted previously in this thread, but my problem is slightly different. Many of my desktop icons appear with question marks on top of the icon itself. The icons still work when you click on them, but they don't look right obviously. Also, I noticed the only icons affected by this are the cd-rom games that have been installed or internet trial icons. Oh, by the way, the computer has the Windows ME operating system. Thanks so much for any help.

question mark over an item in the dock means that the original item can not be found because it was either moved or deleted. first check you main Applications folder. that's where those things should be by default. if they are not there they may have been moved, do a spotlight search for them. try it from all user accounts you have on the mac as sometimes people move the apps to the desktop or a place like that. also check the Trash on all accounts. if the apps are nowhere to be found you can reinstall them from the leopard install DVD using pacifist

you'll have to install 10.5.7 combo update afterwards to bring those apps to their latest versions.
