Garbled characters in browser(s)

Hello -

I'm having an issue in Windows 7 where no matter what browser I use (IE9,Firefox,Chrome) I get certain portions of text on websites that show up as random (garbled) characters. They look like they're English, but their jumbled up.
Even when I try to enter text on some sites (like this Forum) - i can only type certain characters. So I end up copying and pasting the data I need to enter right from wordpad. I ended up pasting the characters and it works within this posting if I choose ANY font EXCEPT Verdana. When I change this posting to Verdana I get the garbled characters.

Any help is greatly appreciated!
