     I have a Windows Vista Home Premium, thats been working with no problem for about a year now. After I did an automatic update (the update becomes obvious of its presence, having an exclamation mark beside the power off button in the start menu) the computer does its regular power off, just like any ordinary computer. After I rebooted my computer, then suddenly realized that some of the fonts for certain things got distorted (in a way, a different font that is a pain to read, being so used to the normal font) and some icons (ie: .exe files, disks in general [removable disk, dvd drive, local disk], and some more which may have a problem, but that of what i am unaware of) turned into a square with random colors on it. To be specific, it looks as if there were tiny specs of sand that are extremely colorful, placed into a transparent sandbox. I do not know for sure if there was anything wrong I did before that (well, for what I remember of,) but please, help me fix these problems as soon as possible before I go insane. I thank everyone in advance for their cooperation, time, and generosity.

Hello and Welcome to

Have you tried system restore? This could be a result of a bugged update from Microsoft, I have seen this happen too often. Also, have you installed SP1 for Vista yet? It is suppose to have fixed a ton of bugs this far.
