Random applications changing to Greek.

Yes. First SMPlayer, then VirtualBox. They're not even following Greek language rules, simply substituting English letters for their Greek equivalents. See following:

Anybody want to help? Also:

Any takers on why Size, Type, and Date Modified are not working. I have no clue what's going on. I don't recall doing anything to my MBR...

Heh heh. The one time that some Linux issue is 'Greek' to me...:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Did you accidentally swap out a font or change some system font to the one with Greek letters? Either way there's a font somewhere on your computer that your system thinks is a valid English font (i forgot what the letters are called.) Find it and delete it/rename it and hopefully whatever it falls back on will be correct.
