How can we fix the text on our computer from gibberish back to english?

Q: All the writing on our computer, from the login screen to the labels for the short-cut icons on the screen have been converted to gibberish. It is still possible to login and open the programs, but some tasks are not possible because of the gibberish. I presume a virus. We have Kaspersky 7.0 for security. Any ideas?
