Internet Explorer Problems

I'm not sure if this is the correct forum or not yet .... I need help with my Internet Explorer. The problem is as follows. I tend to visit sites from Japan a lot and that means japanese signs all over the site. No problem actually but my browser only shows these signs as squares and I don't have a clue how to get rid of that. I tried everything I knew of but still. Can you help me?

Ok windows would be the better forum ill move it there now.

As for the japanese text. you will need to go to the windows update site and downlaod the japanese font thingy for windows.

if you are on win2k you can install it from your disk

ATh
edit, once you do that, you will need to right click a webpage (any)

go to ENCODING and set it to the japanese one

You should check that through the option in the toolbar
view>ecoding>auto-select is enabled, this with switch to the appropriate encoding automatically (stating the obvious) and prompt you to download a language pack if needed eg japenease text display.

The strange thing is I have downloaded all these japanese files and checked the auto function yet I cannot see a site like yahoo.co.jp without these squares.
