How do I encode those ??? symbols in windows XP (which are supposed to be Chinese characters)?

I am trying to read the ??? characters in a software I just downloaded.
For instance, when I click Files >, ???? symbols comes up instead of the actual Chinese characters.

Do you have your language set to Chinese? Are you sure you have that font installed?

Yes, I have the Chinese Language Pack installed (including Traditional and Simplified). From what I recall, Simplied is QuanPin and Traditional is Phonetic.

I finally got the problem fixed.
I went to Regional and Language Options in Control Panel, and then clicked the Advanced tab, and installed Chinese Languages.
There was a prompt to place the Windows XP CD, which I did, and I located the file that was needed, and I restarted the computer.

Done
